Kolkata: Stating that the word legend was not adequate to describe Bengali screen icon Suchitra Sen, who died Friday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Friday hailed her as a "god" and recalled how the star had spoken to her as a "near and dear one".

"It would be wrong to address her as a legend. She was a god," said Banerjee,while officially announcing Sen's death at the nursing home premises, in the morning.

Sen was 82. Her body was consigned to flames at the Keoratala crematorium here Friday afternoon. During her last rites the 'Mahanayika' (great actress) remained virtually invisible to the public.
