Pran won’t travel to Delhi to receive Dadasaheb Phalke Award

The ailing actor will be given the prestigious award in absentia

Pran, Bollywood’s favourite baddie for almost two decades, will not be able to travel to Delhi to collect the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award.

The 93-year-old actor, who has been suffering from ill health is keeping better now, but the journey from Mumbai to Delhi may prove to be too taxing for him said his daughter Pinky Bhalla. “My father is keeping better. He is honoured to have received the award but he knows that he is not in a condition to travel the distance to receive the award. I have already informed them about it.”

While awarding him the distinction, the government praised the actor for the powerful negative roles he performed in his career. “His impressive performances have bestowed an entirely unique new dimension to the negative and character roles in Hindi cinema,” said a statement from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

Pran debuted alongside Dev Anand in the 1948 film Ziddi. Some of his most memorable films include Don, Zanjeer and Ram Aur Shyam among others.
