Veteran Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee passed away at the age of 85 on November 15 in Kolkata. He breathed his last at Belle Vue Nursing Home in Kolkata after being hospitalised for nearly a month. Soumitra Chatterjee had tested positive for the novel coronavirus on October 5, 2020 and got admitted to the hospital the very next morning. 

"We declare with heavy heart that Shri Soumitra Chattopadhyay breathed his last at 12.15 p.m. at Belle Vue Clinic today (15 November 2020). We pay our homage to his soul," the bulletin from Kolkata's Belle Vue Hospital said.
