Entertainment Desk: The names of Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen will be written in golden letters in the history of the golden age of Tollywood. They can be called Bengal’s first superstar. Their duo’s popularity remains unbroken today even after so many decades. But Bengali lost this pair prematurely. Uttam Kumar passed away prematurely. Suchitra Sen also folded herself and went into hiding soon after.
There are many questions in the minds of Suchitra Sen’s fans as to why she took such a big decision in her life overnight. When Suchitra thought of quitting acting, her career was in mid-air. Some think that Suchitra could not accept the death of Uttam Kumar. He went into hiding to immortalize their pair.
There is much speculation about Uttam-Suchitra’s personal relationship. They were very good friends of each other. In the gossip about them, however, it was also heard that the relationship between them is very deep. Both fell in love with each other. Uttam Kumar himself proposed marriage to Suchitra. However, Uttam-Suchitra never gave seal to these rumours.
Suchitra Sen’s daughter Moon Moon Sen opened up about why she decided to quit acting. Munmun says the reason behind Suchitra’s sudden quit was the screenplay. In the 1970s, the genre of Bengali films began to change. On the other hand, the directors with whom Suchitra was comfortable working also passed away one by one.
Suchitra could not adapt to the new type of screenplay of that time. Suchitra’s mind was wondering with whom will she act now? Uttam Kumar also died at that moment. The actress then decided to quit acting for good. At the same time, he also tried to step into Bollywood. But due to age he failed there too.
After that he used to appear at Belur Math in search of peace of mind. There Maharaja Bharata told Suchitra, “Maa Orthlipsu, don’t be greedy”. These words had a great impact on Suchitra’s mind. He then stopped chasing fame. After that, the Bengali heroine spent the rest of her life with her daughters and granddaughters.
