Mumbai, Nov 24: Yesteryears' screen villain Pran was discharged from Lilawati Hospital today after being hospitalized for eight days.



Pran had complained of breathlessness and weakness on Friday last week after which he was rushed to Lilawati hospital for treatment.

The 92-year-old actor  is now feeling comfortable, hospital sources said.

Born in Old Delhi's Ballimaran on February 12, 1920, Pran's father Kewal Krishan Sikand was a civil engineer and govt contractor. Pran completed his matriculation from Raza High School, Rampur, and later joined A. Das & Co. in Delhi as an apprentice photographer.
