    In the fifties of last century Ardhendu Bhattacharya was a bright, young and extremely handsome front-desk personnel in the famous 'The Oberai Grand Hotel' of Calcutta.
    He was spotted by a part time actor of Bengali films.
    In the next few decades he has acted in at least 70-75 Bengali and a few Hindi movies with film icons like Chhobi Biswas, Uttam Kumar, Suchitra Sen, Supriya Devi, Sharmila Tagore,Bikash Roy, Saumitra Chattopadhyay,Dilip Roy, Ashoke Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan,Prem Chopra and many others.

    Thought he could never become a hero or even a celebrity,but during his heyday he was very popular and a respected name in Tollywood(The Calcutta counterpart of Holly/Bollywood).
    Still almost in every week his films are shown in one TV channel or the other as he has acted in almost all the major movies of that golden era.
    Some of his films are
    • Shudhu ekti bacchar(???? ???? ???)
    • Uttarayan (????????)
    • Sesh anko(??? ????)
    • Surjoshikha(?????????)
    • Kakhono megh(???? ???)
    • Prastor swakhkhor(??????? ????????)
    • Nayikar bhumikay(??????? ???????)
    • Kach kata hirey(??? ???? ????)
    • Antaraley(????????)
    • Agnishikha(?????????)
    Hindi films like:
    • Do anjane
    • Tin debiyan

    A few years back he came to my clinic with some skin problems and that's how I came to know about him.

    He is 88 now and fighting a losing battle with everything surrounding him.
    His elder daughter was a political activist(and a councilor) who died a few years back. His younger daughter stays abroad.

    He was supposed to go to an old home in Puri a few years back but unfortunately met with an accident just a couple of days before his scheduled day of departure.
    Now he stays in a small room of a dilapidated house with the help of an aging and feeble maid servant.

    He was scheduled to finally go to her daughter in Canada. But now he is reluctant and more importantly too weak to take a long haul flight.

    Every time when I come out of his house through a narrow and ill-illuminated ally in the Cornfield Road of south Kolkata... he tries to focus his torch with his trembling and weak hand from behind ...and whispers...'take care'....
