Popular Bengali actress Sonali Chakraborty passed away at a city hospital this morning after being unwell for quite some time.
The actress was a part of the Bengali mega serial Gaatchora, starring Solanki Roy and Gourab Chatterjee as the lead pair. Sonali played Solanki’s aunt in the popular daily soap.
Married to actor Shankar Chakraborty, Sonali was a well-known face in TV serials and also acted in several movies. Her performance in Rachana Banerjee and Ferdous Ahmed-starrer Har Jeet (2002) was praised. She also played a key role in Bandhan (2004) alongside Jeet and Koel Mallick.
However, she curtailed the number of her appearances on both small and big screens due to health issues. She had to be admitted to the hospital earlier this year.
The West Bengal Motion Picture Artists’ Forum expressed grief at the news of the death of the veteran actress and said Sonali's last rites will be held at Keoratola Crematorium at 10:30am.
