Kathmandu : Actor Mithun Chakraborty’s father Basant Kumar Chakraborty has died at the age of 95. He died at a hospital in Malad, Mumbai on Tuesday.
Doctors have confirmed that he died of cardiac arrest after five days of treatment at the hospital.
The doctor had advised to take the corpse directly from the hospital instead of taking it home as he was suffering from many diseases with advancing age. That is why he was taken straight from the hospital to the pier and was cremated on the same day.
But actor Mithun Chakraborty, who went to Bangalore for filming, was there due to lock down. That is why he could not attend his father’s funeral.
According to Mithun’s manager Vijay Upadhayaya, the Chatravarti family did not try to inform the media about the death of Basanta Kumar Chakraborty.
