Veteran Bollywood actor Amrit Pal passed away on Monday evening at his residence in Mumbai after a prolonged illness. He was 76.
The actor mostly played villainous roles in films and shared screen space with top yesteryear stars such as Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Mithun Chakraborty, Anil Kapoor among others.
"He was suffering from liver cirrhosis from a long time and was bedridden. He was hospitalised for quite a few days and was later brought home. He passed away at 5 pm yesterday at his home in Malad," Pal's daughter Geeta told PTI.
He started his career in Bollywood with Jeetendra-Sridevi starrer 'Jaal' as a villain.
One of his most notable performances was in Rajiv Mehra's 'Pyar Ke Do Pal', starring Poonam Dhillon and Mithun Chakraborty in the lead.
Pal is survived by two daughters, a son and grandchildren.
