Bollywood star Pran has died at the age of 93.

The actor, who made his name playing villainous roles, passed away at a hospital in Mumbai, India on Friday (12Jul13) after a battle with pneumonia.

Pran, whose full name was Pran Krishan Sikand, spent the last two weeks of his life in hospital.

He enjoyed a movie career spanning more than 60 years and starred in over 350 film projects, which included bad guy roles in Bari Behen (Elder Sister), Azaad (A Free Man) and Zanjeer (Shackles).

Pran's Zanjeer co-star Amitabh Bachchan paid tribute in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "A gentleman, most collaborative colleague. Another magnificent pillar of the film industry falls," while Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, adds, "Indian cinema has lost an icon".

Pran was presented with the Indian government's highest honour for cinema, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, in May (13).
