Veteran actor Pran’s last rites to take place at Shivaji Park crematorium

Legendary actor Pran’s body, adorned with flowers, was taken to the Shivaji Park crematorium here Saturday morning

The body was kept overnight at the Lilavati Hospital, where Pran, Bollywood’s most loved villain, breathed his last late Friday evening. He was 93. His last rites will reportedly be conducted at the electric crematorium in Dadar west around 12:30 p.m. Among the early attendees from Bollywood included veteran writer Gulzar.

Pran’s film repertoire included over 400 projects in over six decades of his association with cinema. He had not been keeping well since the past few months, and he was in and out of the hospital lately.

He is survived by his wife Shukla Sikand, sons Arvind and Sunil, and daughter Pinky, as well as his beloved grandchildren.

During his long and prolific career, Pran was marked for his roles as a villain, hero and even a character artist.

On May 10, he was conferred the coveted Dadasaheb Phalke Award for Lifetime Achievement, the highest honour of Indian film industry, at his home, by Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari.
