Asit Sen (Bengali: অসিত সেন; 13 May 1917[1] – 18 September 1993[2]) was a prolific Indian film actor and comedian in the Hindi film industry. He starred in over 200 films between 1953 and 1993 until his death. He often portrayed a character with authority, such as a police inspector or landlord, but with comedic effect, mostly as a slow-speaking person. His acting career was particularly prolific in the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s. He had a very thin voice, in striking contrast to his huge physical frame.
