Statue of 'Harihar' of Pather Panchali

We know him as 'Harihar' - father of Apu of Satyajit Ray's film
'Pather Panchali' but his original name is Kanu Bandyopadhyay. He
acted in many more Bengali films apart from Ray. But, for the first
time, on his 108 birthday, a statue would be inaugurated on 20 June,
2012 by Sandip Roy - the son of Satyajit Ray. Sutanuti Book Fair
Committee and Kanu Bandyopadhyay Smaran Samity are jointly responsible
for this venture. On the said day, at 6 pm, the statue would be
unveiled at Banamali Chatterjee Street of Tala.
