Veteran actor Kishore Pradhan, who has worked in several Hindi and Marathi films, breathed his last at the age of 86. The actor was known for his work in both films as well as theatre. Kishore is best remembered for his role in Jab We Met and Lage Raho Munna Bhai. His scene with Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met at a small town railway station is among the most entertaining in the film.
Talking about Pradhan, Marathi actor Subodh Bhave, told Indian Express, “We worked together in Subh Lagna Savdhaan, but after the film’s release, I couldn’t keep in touch with Kishore Kaka, as he was not keeping well, and I was out shooting for my film. I don’t know the exact reason of his death yet. His family is grieving and busy with preparations for his funeral.”
Marathi writer and poet, Chandrashekhar Gokhale, also paid his last respects to the actor on Facebook, remembering Kishore Pradhan’s talent of mimicking Johny Walker and Jagdip. Subh Lagna Savdhaan was Kishore’s last film. He was earlier seen in Lalbaug Parel and Shivaji Raje Bhonsle Boltoy.
He also acted in more than 100 Marathi theatre plays, and about 18 English plays.
