'He is not responding to treatment'

Veteran actor Soumitra Chatterjee has stopped responding to treatments, according to a PTI report. He has been admitted at Kolkata's Belle Vue Clinic since October 6.

Arindam Kar, who is leading the treatment of the 85-year-old actor, said that the medical team would have to take some difficult decisions soon.

"His consciousness is a little down compared to the last 72 hours,” he said. “Not very sure which way it is heading. We have received reports of tests and we can deduce that the COVID encephalopathy is progressing."

"Despite the use of steroids and other prolonged efforts, he is not responding to treatment," the doctor added.

He added: “Though his lungs and blood pressure are still working well, there are points to be worried of. His platelet count has come down. We are trying to find out the reason for that. We will take some tough calls tomorrow. We are trying our best. But sometime the best efforts are not enough for someone who is suffering from these disease at his age."

Soumitra had tested positive for coronavirus on October 5, but tested negative later.

Regarded as one of the finest Bengali actors of all time, Soumitra Chatterjee acted 14 classics by Satyajit Ray. He made his debut in the maestro’s 1959 film, Apur Sangsar. Other collaborations by the pair include Aranyer Din Ratri, Charulata, Teen Kanya, Ghare Baire, Ganashatru, and many more.
