As a tribute to the Bollywood actor Pran,who recently passed away,city-based artist Santosh Karvande sketched a portrait of the actor,who played some legendary roles as a villain in Hindi films. On the morning of July 12,as soon as Karvande heard the news of the actor’s demise,he began sketching and finished the entire sketch in 20 minutes,without even lifting his pen once,he says. “It was an artist’s way to salute another artiste for his tremendous contribution to the film industry,” says Karvande,adding that though he is not sure whether he has given proper justice to the talent of the late actor,he has definitely given his soul to the portrait. “The way Pran characterised his roles in each film was remarkable. This quality of him made him a versatile artiste,” says Karvande,adding that his favourite Pran-starrer movies are Majboor and Upkar.
