Anup Kumar (17 June 1930  –3 September 1998[1]) was an Indian film actor who mainly worked in Bengali cinema.

Early life[edit]

Anup Kumar was born on 17 June 1930 in Kolkata. His real name was Satyen Das. His parents were Dhirendra Nath Das, who was a singer, and Bijoya Das. He passed his Matriculation at the Calcutta Jubilee Institution. In 1986, he married actress Aloka Ganguly. Anup is also well known in Toronto, ON, Canada.

Acting career[edit]

Anup Kumar took his acting lessons from his father and Sisir Kumar Bhaduri. He started acting quite early in life. He got his first break as a child artist in Dhiren Ganguly’s film Haalkatha (1938). Nimontron and Palatak were other early movies. He was also involved with live theatre, yatras, and film directing.

In 1964, he was awarded the Bengal Film Journalists' Association Award (BFJA Awards) for Best Actor in the film Palatak. He received a silver medal from the Star Theatre. In 1988, he won the West Bengal Natya Academy Award. In 1989, he was awarded Siromoni Prize and in 1991, he was awarded Best Director for his yatras. In 1997, he was recognized by the BFJA Awards for completion of 50 years in films.

Besides his superlative performance in 'Palatak', Anup Kumar is also remembered for his brilliant comic timing. Along with the classic comedians like Nabawdip Haldar, Bhanu Bandopadhyay, Jahor Roy and Rabi Ghosh, Anup Kumar is also a much-loved actor due to his comic character role in films such as 'Basanto Bilap', 'Mouchak', 'Dadar Kirti', 'Protisodh'. After the demise of Rabi Ghosh, it was Anup Kumar who was cast as Jatayu, the famous friend of Satyajit Ray's detective Feluda.

Run for political office[edit]

In 1996, Kumar stood for election to the Vidhan Sabha (lower house) as representative from Cossipore, but didn't win.
