Subir Banerjee


Subir Banerjee was 8 years old when he played the character of Apu in Satyajit Ray's classic 1955 film "Pather Panchali". On the 25th anniversary of the film, "India Today" reported in its article "Pather Panchali: An Odyssey Revisited", March 31, 1980, that Banerjee, then 33, had spent his adult career as a millhand at an engineering factory in the suburbs. In another follow-up, on July 3, 2006, "India Today" reported that Banerjee, then 60, had retired 5 years previously from his job as a "provident fund officer" at an engineering firm. "India Today" also reported that his wife Madhuri belatedly found out about his place in film history when they moved to the outskirts of Kolkata, either after his retirement or somewhat earlier in their marriage.
