- Her acting quality was exemplary: Prosenjit Chatterjee
- Supriya Devi is known for her role in Meghe Dhaka Tara
- She showcased her talent across the genres of medium, said Mr Chatterjee
"Her contribution can never be forgotten. Leave aside other films, if an actress works with such excellence in a cult film like Meghe Dhaka Tara, she need not work in any other film. Her acting quality was exemplary. The young generation should watch films of actors like her and learn from them," Prosenjit said.
She opened new opportunities for artistes of the Bengali film industry with her performance in the title role of Janani, one of the first mega serials in Bengali television, he said.
"She showcased her talent across the genres of medium - films, 'jatra' (folk theatre), plays and finally television. When she did her films, there was no television. But we need to salute the genius of performers like her who could adapt to any medium," he added.
