Shakti Samanta, the name that was responsible for giving many Bollywood classics like Howrah Bridge, China Town, Kashmir Ki Kali, An Evening In Paris etc, is no more amongst us, as he took his last breath in his residence around 6 pm on Thursday. Before joining Bollywood, Shakti was working as a teacher in Dapoli, a small village in Mumbai. In 1948, he took his first step in Bollywood by assisting directors like Gyan Mukherjee, Satish Nigam and Phani Majumdar at the famous Bombay Talkies. After that, there was no looking back for this legendary man. Shakti Samanta has also been the proud recipient of innumerable Filmfare and other awards for his work in films like Aradhana, Anuraag, Amanush etc.
