Big B visits Pran in hospital
Who can forget the superb combination of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and iconic villain Pran of Indian cinema in movies like ‘Zanjeer’ and ‘Don’, the duo worked together in more than 10 films and Amitabh Bachchan who visited Pran at Lilavati hospital in Mumbai said that it is always been a delight to work with Pran.
Pran, 92, was admitted to the hospital on Friday following breathing problem and Big B visited him. Amitabh Bachchan updated about Pran Saheb’s health. "I read quite by accident that Pran saheb is unwell and in hospital, and I call immediately to check facts and details. Later, a few hours ago, I visit him. He is fine, repaired enough to be home by Wednesday, and full of laughter and talk of the times spent together," Big B posted on his blog.
Talking about Pran’s professionalism, Big B wrote, "A
true professional, an earnest colleague, a gentleman and in possession of an
elephants memory on some of the most incredible 'shairi'
of the times gone by. Irrespective of the heavy makeup that he wore on most of
his films - the heavy false beards and wigs interpreting various characters
that he played - he was always the first on the set and never left it to get
back to his room," Bachchan wrote.
"He would sit quietly after his shot was over, in the heat of the studio, with gentle demeanour, throughout the shift, leaving only after the 'pack up' sound...On outdoor schedules, he was a delight to spend time with - his daily evening drink and his numerous anecdotes and knowledge of urdu poetry," he further posted.
"This evening too he is filled with those numbers and at 92, god bless him, has not lost any of his sense of humour and humility," he added.
Pran is responding well and he will be discharged soon.
