The condition of veteran Bengali actress Suchitra Sen remains stable but supportive therapy like intermittent non-invasive ventilation continues, a medical bulletin said Friday.

According to the latest bulletin, Sen, who had grown weak due to poor food intake, "looks brighter today (Friday) after tolerating the prescribed diet well".

"The supportive therapy like nebulisation, intermittent non-invasive ventilation and physiotherapy continues as before," it said. She is being treated at the Belle Vue Clinic here.

The actress, who has shunned media and public for decades, intially suffered chest infection. The 82-year-old actress was undergoing treatment for the same at a nursing home since Dec 23. Her condition worsened Dec 28 night.

Following complications, Sen was put on the ventilator Jan 3.

After the actress' condition worsened, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee rushed to city nursing home and spent some time with her at the intensive therapy.

"I have seen her. She is sleeping," said Banerjee coming out of the nursing home.

Dubbed as the Greta Garbo of Bengali cinema, Sen is known for her performances in films "Deep Jwele Jaai" and "Uttar Falguni" in Bengali as well as Hindi movies "Devdas", "Bombai Ka Babu", "Mamta" and "Aandhi".

She won the best actress award for "Saat Paake Bandha" at the Moscow Film Festival in 1963.
