Basantakumar Chakraborty was battling age-related health issues and breathed his last on Tuesday evening, according to Mithun Chakraborty's younger son, Namashi Chakraborty.

"Yes, my grandfather passed away last evening due to kidney failure," Namashi Chakraborty told Press Trust of India.

Namashi Chakraborty said his actor-father is stuck in Bengaluru due to the coronavirus-led nationwide lockdown.

Mithun Chakraborty is trying to come to Mumbai for the last rites, his son added.

His eldest son Mahakshay is currently in Mumbai along with the rest of the family, the report adds.

Bengali actor Rituparna Sengupta took to Twitter to offer condolences to the actor and his family.
