Asit Sen (Bengali: অসিত সেন; born May 13, 1917; died September 18, 1993) was a prolific Indian film actor and comedian in the Bollywood 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, which was quite opposite to his huge physical frame.

He was born in Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh).
