Suchitra Sen in serious condition
Kolkata: Suchitra Sen is in a serious condition after she was admitted to a private hospital following a respiratory tract infection, doctors said on Sunday.
The 82-year-old actress, who lives a secluded life and stays locked up inside her apartment, was admitted to Belle Vue Clinic earlier this week after she complained of breathlessness.
The clinic has formed a five-member-committee to monitor the health of its star patient 24x7 led by cardiologist Dr Subrata Moitra.
Sources in the Belle Vue Clinic said Sen is now on oxygen and has complained of chest pain following which her chest's CT scan was also done.
She is being administered antibiotics and oxygen, they said.
Beginning her career with the Bengali film 'Shesh Kothai' in 1952, Sen went on to receive a national award for her performance in the 1955 Hindi film 'Devdas'.
She is also the first Indian actress to be awarded at an international film festival. She won the best actress award for 'Saat Paake Bandha' at the Moscow film festival in 1963.
But after her 1978 movie 'Pronoy Pasha' with Soumitra Chatterjee flopped, she disappeared from the public eye. She even allegedly refused the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2005 preferring not to make a public appearance.
