Eminent Indian film director Buddhadeb Dasgupta died at his residence here early on Thursday due to old-age related ailments, family members said.

He was 77.

The national award-winning director was having kidney ailments for a long time and undergoing dialysis twice a week regularly, family members said.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee condoled his death.

“Saddened at the passing away of eminent filmmaker Buddhadeb Dasgupta.

Condolences to his family, colleagues and admirers,” Banerjee said on Twitter.
