After graduating in English, she appeared in a film based on Tagores Seshraksha, and later Rajani and Mashal in Bombay. She married Satyajit Ray in 1948. A committed social worker at Mother Teresas Nirmal Hriday, she was also an occasional contributor to the journal Sandesh, after Ray revived it in 1961.
