Deepa Chatterjee, the wife of legendary Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee, died at a city hospital on Sunday, her family said.

"Maa breathed her last around 2:55 am. She died of kidney failure," her daughter Poulomi Bose said.

Soumitra Chatterjee, a multiple award-winning actor, died in November last year following a long battle with various ailments after testing positive for COVID-19.

Deepa, a badminton champion who had also acted in films like Durga and Bilombito Loy, married Soumitra in 1960.
