Om Puri, who has appeared in many Bollywood films and has made a distinct identity of his own, has his death anniversary today. Om Puri had died on this day in the year 2017 and he died at the age of 66 years. He was born in a Punjabi family and his father worked in the Indian Railways. He started his film career with the Marathi film Ghasiram Kotwal and got a new status from the 1983 film Ardh Satya. After this, he told the story of his struggle many times.
He used to clean tea utensils at a tea stall at the age of 6 but for acting, he started studying at the National School of Drama in the year 1988. Om Puri played several roles in Doordarshan's famous TV series 'Bharat Ek Khoj'. The audience liked him a lot. In an interview, he said about his death that "his death will happen suddenly". He said, "You will not even know about death. I will go to sleep (Regarding my demise) then you will know that Om Puri died yesterday morning at 7.22 am." There was something similar. Om Puri's body was found in his house in a naked state and the cause of his death was said to be a heart attack. His wife Nandita has written a book on him 'Unlike Hero: Om Puri'.
In this book, she has told that "One night Om was sleeping on the terrace with his maternal uncle's family. During this time, he had touched a woman in the wrong way. When his maternal uncle came to know about this, he slapped him and drove him out of the house. He had a relationship with a woman working in his house at the age of 14." Now Om Puri is not in this world but people could not forget his powerful acting.
