A recipient of 12 worldwide film awards, Mrinal Sen was also a member of the Indian People's Theatre Association.

Sen was born in 1923 in Faridpur, British India (now Bangladesh).

The body will be kept at a moratorium in the city till his son Kunal Sen returns from overseas. He was heavily influenced by French New Wave cinema.

A Padma Bhushan and Dada Saheb Phalke awardee, Sen paved the way for parallel cinema in the country with films like Ek Din Achanak, Padatik, Mrigaya, Akaler Sandhane, Chorus, Kharij, Khandahar, Bhuwan Shome, Akash Kusum and Calcutta 71.

Sen's last film was 2002's "Aamaar Bhuvan", which won best director at Cairo and best actress for Nandita Das.

Veteran actor Soumitra Chattarjee spoke about 60 years of association with the filmmaker and said that his death has left a huge void in Bengali cinema.

Mrinal Sen died on Sunday morning at the age of 95.

The iconic director who started the "new wave of Indian cinema" with "Bhuvan Shome", was one of the most acclaimed filmmakers to bring recognition to country's film industry on worldwide platforms. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee condoled the demise of Mrinal Sen and said it is a great loss for Bengali film industry.

CPI (M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury also remembered the filmmaker for his humanistic narrative. The President said, it is a loss to Bengal, to India and to the world of cinema. "Deepest condolences", he wrote.
