A demeanour of a quiet un pronounced , unmistakable marked discipline. The tenderness of a considerate colleague. Soft spoken, reserved, Urdu verse literate, and all other justifiable similar sentiments, for the gentleman called Pran.
Amitabh Bachchan praised Pran’s acting caliber mentioning how most of the roles Pran played were of villains that drew sharp contrast from his ‘real-life’ personality. Big B added, "And none of the above could ever be related to the kind of roles he mostly played on screen – the negative villain! Such was the caliber of his acting prowess! This is a distinction beyond par !” With his ode, Amitabh Bachchan shared three pictures- first one from film Zanjeer, the second still is from Don movie while the third picture appears to be from an event.
