Happy 90th Birthday to PRAN!



Please tell me I've got the lucky number 13!!

Happy Birthday to one of my all-time favorite actors! Whether playing a negative role or a character part, Pran always made each and every role unique and stole almost every scene he was in.



Pran with the Big B!



Pran with Shotgun Sinha!



Dilip Kumar and is that Saira Banu giving that vintage 'bitch, please' face?!



Hello, Shammi-uncle!



Amitabh looks really dashing...



Aw!!!! Happy Birthday, Pran!!!







PREM CHOPRA! I'd know that smile anywhere...!







Here's to a great guy!

Was just mumbling about how the modern hindi heroes/heroins are light years behind their predecessors in terms of good looks and talents: Dillip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Zeenat Aman, Rekha.. and the 60s movies pushed envelops that modern filmmakers would quiver in fright to even touch: illegitimacy (Kalyug), extramarital affair (Silsila).. and what about Madhubala's unconventional role in Howrah Bridge? I've just read a discussion on having 'sex' included in a hindi film title and I went.. what's the fuss about?? I think the world has become more prude in fiction as the people become more uninhibited in reality.. :P

(sorry for rambling)

Thank you ...thank you for this lovely post. All of my very favorite actors are here. So lovely to see all of them. Reminds me yet again why i hate the current bollywood. Those were the days.

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
