Most loved villain Pran

 Veteran Bollywood Actor Pran Krishan Sikand better known as Pran was born on February 12th in 1920 in old Delhi. He made an unforgettable place in the hearts of his audiences with his remarkable acting prowess. The veteran actor did more than 350 movies in a career spanning over six decades and played a vast range of roles - from a hero to a villain to a character artist. With his dashing mannerisms and intensity, Pran came to be known as the most fearsome villain that Hindi cinema ever had.

He wanted to be a photographer but destiny has stored something else for him. The man who aspired to become a professional photographer entered into acting through a chance meeting with the writer, Wali Mohammad Wali and made his debut in film industry with the Punjabi film Yamla Jat. He played the hero in the film opposite Noorjehan. The film became a hit and the pair starred together in their first Hindi film 'Khandaan'.

After Partition, he started trying his luck in Mumbai without much success. With the help of Saadat Hasan Manto and actor Shyam, Pran landed a role in Dev Anand-Kamini Kaushal starrer Ziddi. With the success of the film, Pran never looked back playing negative roles. Later in his career he played negative lead in many films like Madhumati, Dil Diya Dard Liya, Ram Aur Shyam, Ziddi, Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai, Aah and Chori Chori, which were immensely appreciated.

 Apart from negative roles, he has also played character roles like in the film Upkar. His role of Malang Chacha with the famous dialogue Raashan par bhaashan bahut hai! Bhaashan par koi raashan nahin!from the film became a huge hit. The film also had the popular song, "Kasme Waade Pyaar Wafaa" picturised on him. He continued to play many character roles since this film and one such other role is that of Sher Khan from the film Zanjeer. In this film also a very hit song Yaari Hai Imaan was picturised on him. In the 70s, Pran was among the highest paid actors in Indian cinema, ahead of his co-stars like Amitabh Bachchan Dharmendera and Vinod Khanna.

 This legendary actor received many awards in his career including India's third highest civilian award Padma Bhushan in the year 2001. He was also recently bestowed with the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke Award 2013 for his remarkable contribution to Hindi cinema. Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari had presented the award to him at his residence in Mumbai as the actor could not attend the ceremony in New Delhi due to ill-health. Pran married Shukla Ahluwalia in 1945 and has two sons, Arvind and Sunil and a daughter, Pinky. Pran was loved and feared in equal measure by moviegoers for his roles in Bollywood hits like Milan, 'Madhumati',Upkar and 'Zanjeer. He acted in over 350 films and left his imprint as a villain with powerful roles in films like Kashmir ki Kali,Khandaan, Aurat, Bari Behen, Jis Desh Men Ganga Behti Hai, Half Ticket,Ram Aur Shyam Purab Aur Paschim and Don.
