Ronnie Chakraborty, a well known TV actor and anchor, died last night in a mysterious turn of events.
His death, which has shocked Tollywood and the Bengali TV industry, is still shrouded in mystery, as his dead body was recovered from a pond, near his home.
Family members have quoted that he, along with two friends, went to take a dip in the nearby pond last night. His friends quoted that he swam almost half the pond when he was making no response to their voices. They rushed to his house and came along with his father. He was declared dead when they took him to Bangur hospital after fishing out his limp body from the pond.
Colleague, well-wisher and friend, Mir, posted the following on his Facebook wall, remembering Ronnie:
“Another earthquake.. But of a different kind.. Not possible to track on a Richter scale. Shaken and Shocked beyond compare. I generally refrain from commenting/posting/writing about the deceased but the fact that Ronnie who’s current status by the laws of nature reads ‘No More’ actually had ‘More… Much much More’ left to be done with his Life. Sharing a post from his wall and recollecting those times when we would bump into each other at some place or the other and his whining tone: “Dada… Tomaay aami friend request pathate parchhi naa.. Facebook bolchhe – ‘Do you know this person? – Ridiculous, dada! Tomaay aami chinbo naa…” And we would have a royal laugh and I would promise to send him a friend request ASAP. Shei friend request’ta aamaar Aar pathano holo naa… We were close anyways. Remembering those long evenings inside the Sangeet Bangla make up room where he would at times bug me to death on sharing ‘Tips on anchoring’ and I would constantly chide him saying he was a natural talent. He would just have to get there himself and that I was absolutely no one qualified enough to guide him better than his own self. Fare well my brother… Gone too soon.”
Ronnie is survived by his wife and 6-month-old daughter, whose annoprashon (the ritual of feeding a kid solid food for the first time) was scheduled for next Friday.
Mystery still lies about the death of Ronnie Chakraborty. He will always be an inspiration for the youths. He was a promising actor, a good friend and also a good human being.
May his Soul to Rest in Peace.
