Chatterjee, one of Bengal’s most celebrated actors, has received many awards and honours, including the Padma Bhushan, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, national awards and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Tagore Ratna.
He is best known for his collaboration with Oscar-winner Satyajit Ray and the Feluda series.
“We are trying to get him better than what he is now. But the challenges are very steep. Time and again new issues are cropping up because of his age, comorbidities and repercussions of so much medication,” stated the last medical bulletin issued late Monday night.
Winner of Dadasaheb Phalke Award, Chatterjee was admitted on 6 October after he tested positive for COVID-19. He had to be shifted to the COVID ITU after his condition deteriorated.
Millions of people in Bengal and beyond have been praying for Chatterjee’s recovery ever since he was admitted.
