Kolkata, March 1 (IANS) Suchitra Sen, the reclusive screen goddess of yesteryears who is suffering from a chest infection, is improving but is still on oxygen support, a hospital official said Saturday.
'She is fine. She is recovering well. She slept well and ate well. There is no cause for worry,' Pradip Tandon, chief executive officer (CEO) of the Belle Vue Clinic, where the actress was admitted, told IANS.
'When she can be discharged is too early to say but she is definitely improving,' he said.
Tandon, however, said Sen is still on oxygen.
Suchitra Sen was admitted to Belle Vue Clinic Monday night with chest infection, which caused breathlessness.
A three-member team of doctors, including physician Subrata Moitra, is treating her.
Daughter Moonmoon Sen, who visited her, said Bollywood starlets Raima and Riya Sen, granddaughters of the veteran actress, would also come to see her soon.
In October last year, Sen was admitted to the same nursing home with high fever.
Suchitra, who dominated the Bengali film industry in the 1950s and 60s, left the industry in 1978 after a career spanning over 25 years, and since then has been living in seclusion.
