Kolkata, June 12 (IBNS) A condolence meeting was organised in the memory of filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh at Najrul Manch here on Tuesday.
Celebrities and intellectuals came together on the occasion to rejuvenate some memories which they had with the maestro.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was also present at the event.
Authors Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay and Suchitra Bhattacharya, along with poet Joy Goswami, were present there.
Directors Aparna Sen, Kaushik Ganguli, Sudeshna Roy, Srijato Bandopadhyaya and Mainak Bhowmik paid their tribute to Ghosh.
Music director Debojyoti Mishra arranged some tracks for the evening which were sung by Srabani Sen, Raghav Chatterjee and Parama.
Actors Prasenjit Chatterjee, Churni Ganguli, Indranil Sen, Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Abir Chatterjee, Soumitra Chatterjee, Mamata Sankar, Madhabi Mukhopadhyay, June Malya, Parambrata Chatterjee and Anusua Majumdar shared memories of moments which they spent with Ghosh.
Singer Raghav sung the track 'Piya Tora Kaisa Abhimaan' from Ghosh's film Raincoat (2004).
Aparna Sen said, "Whenever I used to write any script Ritu used to be the first person to read it. He used to absorb so many experiences from outside. I have seen the change rather transforming maturity within Ritu. Many of his scripts, songs and poems are still unpublished."
"My earnest request to the Chief Minister is to make an archive preserving all these creations of Ritu," she added.
The stage, which was a replica of Ghosh's drawing room, was designed by set designer Tanmoy Nag.
