R.I.P Pran Saab

The legendary Pran saab is no more.

Yesterday I had written a post about movies of yesteryear. Ironical, today evening came the news of the demise of Pran. His portrayal of the characters was so strong that mothers were scared to name their child after his name. Over the years, this name has been solely associated with the great Pran. The eyes were enough to scare the wits out of anybody.

Though he played a villain in reel life, He was a hero in his real life. A friend of all, he will be remembered by all. He gave the villain a charismatic charm and poise. His screen presence was equivalent to the hero itself. Later in his career he even did comic roles, and character roles with the same ease as with his earlier characters.

A few months back Government bestowed him with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award. The Pran we saw on TV that day was on a wheel chair but the aura was evident.  At the age of 93, he left for the heavenly abode leaving behind a trail of characters for generations ahead to enjoy and learn.

You will always stay with us Pran Saab!


  1. An actor par excellence - RIP. Amjad Khan's acting as a good cop in Feroz Khan's `Quarbani' was outstanding. Thank you
