Renowned actress Geeta Sen died in her residence here on Monday, after a month-long illness. She was 86.
Wife of celebrated filmmaker Mrinal Sen, she leaves behind her famed husband and only son Kunal. A month back, she had suffered cerebral haemorrhage, which robbed her power of speech and made her bed ridden.
