Pran, the last gentleman villain of Bollywood, died on Friday evening at the age of 93 in a Mumbai hospital after a prolonged illness.

Recently awarded with a Dadasaheb Phalke Award, whose screen presence and charisma hypnotised generations for over five decades, Pran was a phenomenon in himself.

He showcased how much weight a villain's character is capable of carrying. He brought villains on par with heroes with his splendid performances.

From celebrities to politicians, everybody has been offering their condolences on Twitter:
