Bengali actor Aindrila Sharma dies at 24

Bengali actor Aindrila Sharma, 24, who defeated cancer twice, passed away on Sunday. She was admitted to a hospital in Howrah, West Bengal after suffering a brain stroke on November 1. After 20 days in the hospital, Sharma breathed her last on Sunday. She suffered multiple heart attacks on Saturday night, reports The Indian Express.

Diagnosed with bone marrow cancer in 2015, she underwent chemotherapy in Delhi and returned home after defeating the disease in 2016. Sharma was again diagnosed with a cancerous tumour in her right lung in 2021. She was recently declared cancer-free and made her acting comeback.

She suffered multiple cardiac arrests in the hospital on November 14, too, and was put on ventilator support.

Aindrila Sharma was a part of several Bengali television shows like Jiyon Kathi, Jiban Jyoti, and Mahapeeth Tarapeeth. The actor was dating actor Sabyasachi Chowdhury. He was a constant source of strength for Sharma besides her family members.

Thousands of fans and well-wishers had been praying for her recovery on social media, too, for the last few days. Condolences have started pouring in for the actor from all sections of society.
