Bollywood’s veteran actor Pran breathed his last in the suburban Lilavati Hospital in Bombay yesterday. He was 93.
The legendary actor had been suffering from a long illness to which he succumbed. Known for his suave gentleman like demeanor and playing negative roles with perfection, Pran is one of the ace actors ahead of his times indeed in terms of versatility.
He has featured in hit films like Zanjeer, Madhumati, Ram Aur Shyam, Purab Aur Paschim, Don and so on. The actor will be cremated today at Shivaji park in Dadar. In terms of acting, Pran is more eagerly remembered for his negative roles in films like Half Ticket and Kashmir Ki Kali.
As the news went viral over the internet, Bollywood celebs took to Twitter to mourn his death.
