December 30, 2011

Film actress Doel died of cancer at a city hospital on December 29. She was 45.
The once popular actress breathed her last at Dipham Hospital, finally giving in to a two-and-a-half-year struggle with cancer.
After Doel, whose real name is Ifte Ara Dalia, suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2009, she was admitted to Square Hospital in the capital. Her health condition kept deteriorating since then.
Doel made her film debut in 1982 through acting opposite Razzak in ‘Chandranath’. ‘Kabuliwala’ was her last film with husband Subrato and daughter Dighi, who has now earned popularity as a child model and actress.
Born on September 25, 1966 in Bikrampur, Doel has played a variety of roles in nearly 100 films.
