 Does Suchitra need the Phalke? : HindustanTimes.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-05)
All the women on the Phalke roster are exceptional achievers in their own right, but with the exception of Lata Mangeshkar, none can claim to have soared to the sort of heights that Suchitra Sen did during her heydays.
Though Suchitra deserves the Phalke Award as richly as anybody else, it would only be in the fitness of things if she were to choose to turn her back on it.
And two, a Phalke Award for her would be an incomplete and much-delayed act of recognition given the fact that Uttam Kumar, whose name inevitably crops up every time one mentions Suchitra Sen, never won Indian cinema's top honour.
