The 44th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) which is being held in Goa from November 20-30 will pay tribute to Pran. The legendary Bollywood villain passed away in July this year. Three of his films -- Jis Desh Main Ganga Behti Hai, Madhumati and Zanjeer -- will be screened.
Pran’s son Sunil Sikand and daughter Pinky Bhalla will be present for the screening. The film will be screened on the third or the fourth day of the festival. Pran’s wife Shukla Sikand is also slated to attend.
IFFI director Shankar Mohan says, “As per the festival’s tradition, IFFI pays tribute to noted film personalities who passed away in the year preceding the festival. IFFI invites their family members, friends and well-wishers to attend the screenings of the artiste’s best works.”
Last year, a special homage was paid to Yash Chopra at the festival.
