Suchitra Sen | Indian actress, 82

Suchitra Sen, 82, India's legendary actress known for her memorable roles in both Bengali language and Bollywood films, died Friday after a cardiac arrest, her daughter said.

Ms. Sen was hospitalized in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal state, more than three weeks ago for treatment of a respiratory tract infection, said Moon Moon Sen.

Ms. Sen started acting in 1952 and reigned for 26 years. She won fame in the Bengali films, especially costarring with actor Uttam Kumar. The two become the icons for Bengali melodramas and romantic movies through the 1960s and the 1970s. - AP
