A legend in Bollywood, Pran, Pran Krishan Sikand, breathed his last at Lilawati Hospital, Mumbai, on Friday the 12th July’2013. He was 94. With his death an era of villainy as an art ends. Right from the days he entered the filmdom in 1940, he never had a parallel to match him. At the initial level, he did act as a hero in some films but what became a hall mark for him in later years was the art of villainy playing his roles with unique excellence. He gave the cinema some character roles too with a brief appearance but there too he exceedingly excelled all. No body can forget his roles in Shaheed, Upkaar, Ram Aur Shyam, Zanjeer and the like. We bow our head in reverence to the great soul.
