Happy Birthday, Madhabi Mukherjee.
Madhabi Mukherjee is a reputed actress of yesterdays who worked in Bengali movies. Madhabi Mukherjee is the only living actress to have worked very successfully with Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Mrinal Sen, Tapan Sinha, and Tarun Majumdar. Be it her morose silent moments in “Kapurush O Mahapurush” or lip-synching to “Aaj Mon Cheyeche” in “Sankhabela”, she always proved her worth.
She politely refused Raj Kapoor’s offer to work in “Mera Naam Joker”. Chetan Anand was keen to cast Madhabi Mukherjee in “Aakhri Khat”. She again denied as Hindi films never lured her.
