The masterful story-teller Basu Chatterjee passed away today, 4th June 2020, at the age of 93. His middle cinema, slice-of-life movies like Chhoti Si Baat, Rajnigandha, Baaton Batton Mein, Khatta Meetha and many more have delighted us and we thank him for that feeling. His movies were chronicles of Mumbai and the working-class man, championed by Amol Palekar. His evergreen and timeless movies will never fail to bring joy in our lives.
Understandably, the entire country is reeling in from this loss and have expressed condolences and prayers.
President of India
Thank you for bringing us so much joy that we forgot our struggles and disappointments. Rest in peace, sir.
