Had Suchitra Sen settled in Hindi films for good, Bengal would miss her woefully and Bollywood would reap harvest of her potentials gleefully. Suchitra has proved her worth magnificently in Mumbai. She acted with the top-ranking heroes like Dilip Kumar, Dev Anad, Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra and Sanjeev Kumar. In "Devdas" and "Mamta" she got National Awards. Sanjeev Kumar and Gulzar were so impressed by her calibre that they wanted to do more films with her. But, she opted for self-exile.
