Anup Ghoshal, the accomplished Bengali singer famous for his rendition of 'Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi' from the 1983 film 'Masoom' and his contributions to Satyajit Ray's musicals, breathed his last on Friday, as announced by his family.
Ghoshal, aged 77, had been undergoing treatment for age-related ailments at a private hospital in south Kolkata for several days before succumbing to multi-organ failure at 1:40 pm.
A former Trinamool Congress candidate who successfully contested the 2011 assembly polls from the Uttarpara seat, Ghoshal leaves behind two daughters.

The versatile singer showcased his talent in songs by Kaji Nazrul Islam, Rabindranath Tagore, and modern Bengali compositions. His playback singing roles in Ray's 'Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne' and 'Hirak Rajar Deshe,' as well as collaborations with directors like Tapan Sinha, further solidified his legacy.
The chief minister, in her condolence message, said, "I express my deep grief and condolence over the death of Anup Ghosal, who had sung in Bengali, Hindi, and other languages." This report has been auto-generated from the PTI news service, and ThePrint disclaims any responsibility for its content.
