Veteran actor Om Puri passes away after a massive heart attack early on Friday morning. He was 66. Filmmaker Ashok Pandit took to Twitter and shared this sad news. Om Puri was one of the finest actors in Bollywood. He was also a part of successful movies in Hollywood like East Is East, Wolf and Charlie Wilson’s War. He was one of the first actors to start the trend of ‘crossover’ films. 

The actor has appeared in mainstream Bollywood cinema as well as Pakistani, British and Hollywood films. The actor has received an OBE as well as Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award of India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also condoled his death. “The Prime Minister condoles the passing away of actor Om Puri & recalls his long career in theatre & films,” PMO India tweeted.

An alumnus of Film and Television Institute of India as well as National School of Drama, Puri was on the forefront of what was called art films movement in the 70s. He has worked in acclaimed films such as Bhavni Bhavai (1980), Sadgati (1981), Ardh Satya (1982), Mirch Masala (1986) and Dharavi (1992).

Rest In Peace Sir!
