Supriya Debi shared experiences about Meghe Dhaka Tara.
Bengali superstar Supriya Debi stormed Zee Bangla Mirakkel Program on 9th February, 2012. She was brought by Mir Afsar Ali in the program.
Judge Rajatavo Dutta asked Supriya Debi whether the distributor of the film Meghe Dhaka Tara had asked the director Hrithik Ghatak to change the end of the film to show that Supriya Debi had not died. Supriya Debi answered the question in her own way. She said that Hrithik Ghatak was being asked to do it. And Hrithik Ghatak said the shooting going on in Shillong should continue with Supriya Debi getting better and what will Supriya Debi do after she returned back to Kolkata, take care of her sister’s children? The distributor understood the question of Hrithik Ghatak and decided to finish the film with the dialogue “dada ami bachte chai” which was the last dialogue of Supriya Debi who was suffering from Tuberculosis and died before her brother Anil Chatterjee.
Relationship with Uttam Kumar.
Mir Afsar Ali asked Supriya Debi when the affection of Uttam Kumar developed with her. She said she knew Uttam Kumar as he was close to her elder brothers when he stayed in the Bhawanipur house. Uttam Kumar played badminton very well. She acted with Uttam Kumar for the first time in the film Basu Paribar in 1952.
But the relationship developed from the film Uttarayan in 1963. Mir also asked about Supriya Debi’s cookery skills. She said she cooked very well. In fact some of the well known restaurants of Kolkata followed (Benudi) Supriya Debi’s recipies. She talked about a pickle and fish combination that she cooked long time back.
All the performers and the judges paid lot of respect to Supriya Debi. Mir sang the song “tum jo mil gaye ho” sung by Rafi in the honour of Supriya Debi. She deserved the respect and honour being one of the successful actresses of golden age of Bengali cinema, in other words the 50s and 60s.
