Suchitra Sens house restored in Bangladesh

Dhaka: Legendary actress Suchitra Sen’s ancestral home in Pabna town of Bangladesh has been finally released from the clutches of the Imam Ghazali Institute after a three-decade tussle.

District Administration officials led by Land Officer and Executive Magistrate Shamim Ara Rini took possession of the one-storied house in the town’s Gopalpur neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon.

The officials locked the two panel doors but the organization’s signboard remains fastened over the main entrance.

Authorities had earlier tried but failed to free Suchitra’s home due to legal obstacles. But the full copy of a Supreme Court verdict released on July 10 cleared all barriers.

Born in 1931, Rama Dasgupta (Krishna) is better known as screen goddess Suchitra Sen all over the Indian sub-continent. She spent her childhood in the house in Pabna town’s Hemsagar Lane before her family moved to India during the 1947 Partition.

A memorial museum will be setup in her home, Bangladeshi officials confirmed.
