Amitabh Bachchan Pran saab is a gentleman to the core!
Contrary to his huge screen image of a villain, in real life Pran is a gentleman with an immense attitude to professional behaviour, says Amitabh Bachchan and adds that he is pleased that the 93-year-ancient has been named for the Dadasaheb Phalke award
Besides effective together in the 1973 blockbuster Zanjeer, Huge B and Pran teamed up in Don, Amar Akbar Anthony, Kaalia and Sharaabi.
Sharing his experience of effective with Pran, Huge B wrote on his blog, “A gentleman to the core, who had fantastic respect for his colleagues, and an immense attitude to professional behaviour. By no means late on the sets, even with the heavy make up that he invariably had to indulge in. By no means ever interfered with the work in progress, and surprisingly there were many occasions when he by no means saw the films he worked in.”
“There was by no means any fuss about him. I by no means saw or heard him raise his voice towards anyone, or disagree with what he had to do in adjoin of the camera. He came well prepared, delivered and quietly went home,” he added.
Amitabh wishes Pran excellent health, as the experienced person actor was not keeping well lately. “My joy at him getting this award is boundless. A most deserving recognition. I wish him excellent health and happiness always,” he wrote.
Pran started his career as a hero in 1940 with Yamala Jat, but became a huge name after playing unenthusiastic roles in Milan, Madhumati, Ziddi and Kashmir Ki Kali. Later in his career, he ventured into character roles and wowed everyone as Malang Chacha in Upkar and Khan friend in Zanjeer.
