Turn Rituparno's Library into an Archive: Film Fraternity

The Bengal film fraternity today proposed an archive in late film director Rituparno Ghosh's library for the benefit of film students and movie buffs.

"We on behalf of the film fraternity propose to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee that Rituparno Ghosh's library in his house be turned into archive so that it benefits film students and other movie enthusiasts," filmmaker Aparna Sen said at a condolence meeting.

Banerjee, who was present, immediately responded into the proposal.

"The chief minister has taken note of our proposal and the government will consult the family members of Rituparno Ghosh and take a decision," actor Parambrata Chatterjee said.

The condolence meet remembered Ghosh, whose in his two-decade-old film career not only won international acclaim, but also bagged 12 national awards, through a collage of movies in which he acted and directed.

The evening which began by reminiscing on Ghosh's career in an advertising agency ended with remembering one of the most talented filmmakers of Bengal in the post Satyajit Ray era.

The meet was attended by Soumitra Chatterjee, Aparna Sen, Mamata Shankar, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Rituparna Sengupta, yesteryear's actress Madhobi Mukherjee and others.

"We shared a very good relation. He was like my brother. In his death we have missed some one full of life and creativity," said Sen.

"At this age I more or less regularly hear about passing away of people of my generation, which indicates a transitional phase. But passing away of Ritu, who was so talented and an absolute genius is absolutely not done," said Soumitra Chatterjee.

The chief minister released a collection of poems written by her named Rituraaj.
