Kolkata, December 11
Bengali actor Arya Banerjee who acted in several Bollywood films such as the critically acclaimed ‘The Dirty Picture’ was found dead at her south Kolkata residence on Friday, police said.
The police broke open the door of her third-floor apartment and found that the body of the 33-year-old woman was lying in the bedroom.
The daughter of late sitarist Nikhil Bandyopadhyay, Arya had acted in ‘LSD: Love Sex Aur Dhoka’ (2010) and other films besides ‘The Dirty Picture’ (2011).
She had also done modelling jobs in Mumbai.
Her domestic help got suspicious as she did not respond to door bells and phone calls in the morning and informed the neighbours, who called the police.
Arya lived alone and mostly kept to herself, the domestic help said.
The police said that the body was sent for post-mortem and a forensic team collected samples from her room. PTI
