According to reports, she suffered a massive cardiac arrest and despite all efforts to save her, she passed away.

She was also hospitalized in the last week of January due to complications related to COVID-19 infection.

She recently hit headlines after she denied the Padma Shri which was bestowed on January 26, on the occasion of Republic Day. According to her, daughter, Soumi Sengupta, she turned down the award because receiving the same at the age of 90 is extremely demeaning.
