Bengali actor Param Brata wrote: “request friends in the media to not call and ask for a ‘reaction’. This pain, is too personal. This loss doesn’t belong to words, belongs to me alone.”

“This year will take it all. Parents, legends, childhood, nostalgia. All of it. Merciless year,” Swastika Mukherjee tweeted.

Swastika worked with Soumitra Chatterjee in films like “Rupe Tomay Bholabo Na”, “Hemanter Pakhi”, “Krishnakanter Will”.
