Director Rituparno Ghosh

Actor Abhishek Bachchan says that National Award-winning eminent filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh, who passed away Thursday, was the only director with whom the entire Bachchan family had worked.

"Absolutely shocked with the news of the passing of Ritu da. A dear friend and a great director and a wonderful, wonderful human. RIP," Abhishek, 37, tweeted.

"Just realised that Ritu da was the only director that my family have all worked with individually. Pa (Amitabh) - 'The Last Lear', Ma (Jaya) - 'Sunglass' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan- 'Chokher Bali', and 'Raincoat' and me - 'Antarmahal'," he further tweeted.

Ghosh, who was suffering from pancreatitis, passed away at his South Kolkata residence in sleep around 7.30 a.m. following a massive cardiac arrest, the film industry sources said. He was 49.

    lovely rituparno ghosh ...he was such a genius that the void left by him can not be filled by anyone in the several coming generations...

    his death is an irretrievable loss specially when he had so much potential to give more to the industry!

    "One by one the angels are taking flight. The canvas
    lost its colour with Hussain's death. Pataudi stumped
    cricket lovers looking for a Prince. Apple lost its
    taste with the death of Steve Jobs.And from now
    ghazal will seem listless with the passing of Jagjit
    Singh...Perhaps in some distant future there may be
    a new dawn to replace these shining spirits that have
    left our world.For us, we are left to mourn the
    sweetness that has left our world. RIP " - Rituparno
    Ghosh , on Twitter, October 2011.
    For being, arguably, the best Indian filmmaker of
    this generation, for speaking out aloud about the
    fluidity of sexuality and gender, for not conforming
    to any norms and redefining individuality, for living
    a life that would make compelling cinema in its own
    element. For the linguistic ambidexterity, that made
    your discourses in both Bangla and English a delight
    to listen to/read/observe, for the wit,creativity,
    the poetic finesse. It is a huge loss for the nation.
    Indeed, we are merely left to mourn the talent that
    has left our world.
