Dadasaheb Phalke Award for villainy art goes to Pran after 70 years
Veteran actorPran, who is best known for performing as a villain in many of the Hindi movies, has been awarded with Dadasaheb Phalke Award for his cinematic excellence. The Indian cinema is highly grateful to the actor’s contribution in over 400 films. He was the one who made the negative character an integral part of any movie and was loved for the way of his dialogue delivery and for his add-ons to expressions.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan too thinks of this pillar of the Indian film industry as the most deserving for the honour. Big B who has worked with Pran in films likeSharaabi,Amar Akbar Anthony,ZanjeerandDoncomments, "A glorious tribute to a great human and a large pillar of the Indian film industry... Pran... the Dadasaheb Phalke award by the state."
The actor turned 93 in February this year, is quite deserving for the honour but question arises that why the actor’s excellence was not recognized years back? The talents need to be recognized before time passes. Pran’s 70 years service to cinema is incredible.
