@Adil Uddin: That movie was "Sadhu Aur Shaitan"!
I still remember this movie where Pran sahab plays role of a guy who tried to con his childhood friend and gets killed in the process, and later on the body is dumped into a cab of Mahmood (another Late actor), the way all the customers / passengers were freaked out was pretty funny. The movie had Kishore Kumar and Sunil Dutt too as a cameo.
Thank you sir. you will always be missed. RIP
@Hammad Mian: Thanks for rare information .
R.I.P Mr. Pran you were one of the best actor in negative roles.the bollywood world will remember you for long.
He was also great donor and was wellknown for his charity work and he was also used to pay his taxes on time and use to respect law and order,something what todays actor especially Sanjuy Dutt,Salman Khan,Shiney Ahuja,Govinda must learn from him
Pransahab was the most liked villain of Bollywood! Who can ever forget his "Yari hai imaan mera pyar meri zindagi" In his immortal role of "Sher Khan" in Zanjeer or his comeo role in "Victoria 203"? Pransahab made us happy for the last 70+ yrs. RIP, Pransahab!
RIP Pran saab, you brought amazing class to whatever role you played, whether the sophisticated villain in a hat or the handicapped man in Upkaar or the pathaan in Zanjeer. You will be missed. Dav Anand, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna and now Pran, an era is coming to a close.
