Maha Governor condoles Pran`s demise

Mumbai: Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan today expressed grief over the demise of veteran actor Pran here.

In a condolence message, the Governor wrote, "Pran was a versatile film personality who with his brilliant performances set standards of good acting. Quite often, people admired the hero at the end of the film, but remembered Pran Saheb ever after because of his memorable roles. He brought dignity to the characters essayed by him, and that was his strength."

"The history of the Indian cinema during the last six decades will be incomplete without a reference to his name and immense contribution. I pay my respects to this superb actor and a good human being."

The 93-year-old Bollywood legend died at a hospital here last evening after prolonged illness.
