Veteran actor Kishore Pradhan passed away on Friday. He was 86-years-old. The actor was loved for his comedy roles in Marathi and Hindi films.

Kishore acted in more than 100 Marathi theatre plays and about 18 English plays. He started his acting career when he was studying at Morris College in Nagpur. He would participate in college festivals. Later on, he started his own theatre group, named Natraj.

However, Pradhan was last seen in Marathi film, Subh Lagna Savdhaan. His co-star, Subodh Bhave, in the movie said, “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. He was keeping unwell.”

Famous Marathi writer and poet, Chandrashekhar Gokhale also expressed his condolence. He remembered Kishore Pradhan for his talent of mimicking Johny Walker and Jagdip perfectly.

His performance in Santosh Manjrekar’s Shivaji Raje Bhonsle Boltoy and Mahesh Manjrekar’s Lalbaug Parel received a lot of appreciation.

Also, he acted in many Hindi films like Jab We Met and Lage Raho Munnabhai. In Jab We Met, he played the role of a railway station master, and his dialogue, “Akeli ladki khuli hui tijori ki tarah hoti hai” with Kareena Kapoor became quite famous.
