Kolkata, Jan 17: The City of Joy was shocked at the death of their 'Mahanayika' Suchitra Sen at 8:25 am. However, there were many who were prepared for the news given her deteriorating condition in the past few days. Admitted in Belle Vue Clinic on December 23, relating her last few days were the doctors who were treating her.

"Sen had breathing problems and her oxygen saturation limit dipped. Seeing the deterioration in her condition, the doctors put her on non-invasive ventilation," said one of them. She had primarily complained of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Living in recluse after 25 years of ruling the Bengali film industry, Suchitra Sen had an aura about her. "Probably, she wanted her fans to harbour her 'Mahanayika' (Superstar) image till her death, hence the retirement from public life," opined many fans and experts.

While these were contemplative comments, the Twitterati bursted with "powerful overflow of spontaneous emotions". Fans and film critics across the country poured their hearts out. Even Sushma Swaraj and Shivraj Singh Chouhan weren't left behind.
