Hindi and Marathi actor Kishore Pradhan passed away at the age of 86. The actor was known for his work in both films and theatre.
The veteran actor had a long career in the Hindi and Marathi film industries. He is best remembered by Hindi-speaking audiences for his roles in Jab We Met. His scene with Kareena Kapoor in film at a small town railway station is among the most entertaining in the film. He has also done work in Sanjay Dutt-starrer Lage Raho Munna Bhai.
His co-actor, Subodh Bhave told Indian Express that the cause of his actor’s death is still not known, but he was keeping unwell for a long time now. He further added that “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.”
Pradhan also acted in more than 100 Marathi theatre plays, and about 18 English plays. Subh Lagna Savdhaan was Kishore’s last film.
