Anil Chatterjee Bengali: অনিল চ্যাটার্জী was a Bengali actor in the Bengali cinema during the early fifties through to the mid-nineties and is mostly remembered as a character actor. He acted or performed in about 150 movies, including a few in Hindi. He played different shades, though mostly as a character actor, as well as in leading roles and at times as an antagonist, despite the limited opportunities he received. Irrespective of the roles, he left an indelible impression on the viewers and the critics. He also acted in the leading role in a tele-serial named "Naqab" in the national network of Doordarshan. He is one of the very few selected actors who worked with Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Tapan Sinha and Mrinal Sen; with the first three directors, he performed in more than a number of occasion. His performance in the title role of the film "Deshbandhu Chittaranjan" [a biopic on the noted and revered freedom-fighter and barrister Chittaranjan Das who was conferred the title of "Deshbandhu"] won the appreciation of Basanti Devi, the wife of the "Deshbandhu" apart from being widely admired by one and all.
