Late Soumitra Chatterjee’s Wife Passes Away Months After His Demise, Sharmila Tagore Grieves: 'I've Lost Another Friend' - EXCLUSIVE
Deepa Chatterjee, wife of the legendary Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee who passed away in November 2020, joined her husband in his heavenly abode on April 3 after a prolonged illness.

 Sharmila Tagore who knew the  couple very closely is aggrieved  by the loss. “I knew Deepa  through Soumitra at first and then become close to her. We shared a rapport separate from Soumitra. She was an individual in her own right, and not just her famous husband’s wife. I’d say I knew her almost as  well as I knew Soumitra. She came  home on a number of occasions. It was always a pleasure to met her. I’ve lost another friend.”

 But it Soumitra’s children’s loss that really worries Sharmilaji.  “To have to lose both your parents within months is a real blow for the children. My heart reaches out to them.”

Sharmilaji makes a significant  observation about couples who  have been together for a long time. “When one of them goes, the other  partner loses the will to live. He or she also passes  away soon after. I’ve seen this happen on several occasions. This is specially true if the partner has no life or interests apart from the one who is gone.  He or she loses interest in  living. I am sure Deepa is happy to be with Soumitra again.”
