The national award-winning actress was ailing for sometime.
Ghosh was rushed to a private hospital here after she complained of uneasiness. She was admitted at around 12.30 a.m. and she breathed her last after a few minutes.
Born in 1933, in Manasinghpatana in Cuttack, Ghosh was conferred with the national film award for her stellar performances in films "Laxmi", "Kaa" and "Stree".
In the early days of Odia cinema, she single-handedly raised it to a new level. She was really a symbol of women empowerment when ideas like empowerment were unheard of, said Patnaik.
"Her departure is a great loss to our industry and the world of silver screen. She will always be remembered for her contribution to Odia cinema," he added.
