Pran, Bollywood's black gold dead at 93

Actor Pran, 92, will receive this year's Dadasaheb Phalke Award. Like his name, legendary actor Pran is the life of Indian cinema. Pran elevated the role of villain to a status equal to that of the hero. In a career that spanned over 6 decades, Pran acted in almost every major Bollywood film that came out in the 1960s and 70s. Such was Pran's impact as a screen baddie, that parents would not name their sons Pran, and the name fell out of fashion. Celebrating the prestigious honour given to the actor, we give you a glimpse of his life.
