Om Puri shocked the nation yesterday with his statements on the national television.
In a debate with few political leaders and father of Kargil war martyr Captain Vijayant Thapar, Om Puri lost his cool and ended up giving some shameful statements.
While the argument was on about the Pakistani artistes ban, Om Puri in an effort to defend the ban, insulted Indian martyrs. He said, “Humne Kisi Ko Force Kiya Ki Tum Fauj Mein Jao?” (We haven’t forced them to join army.)
He further said, “Prepare 15-20 people as suicide bomber and send them to Pakistan.”
Not just this, when a political leader argued with him, saying he is defending Pakistani artistes as he wants to work with Salman Khan and not rub him the wrong way, Om Puri went to the extent of saying “I give a damn about Salman Khan or any other Khan.”
These statements from an actor of his calibre have indeed surprised a lot of people in the industry and the nation. One of them was Anupam Kher, who expressed his disbelief on Twitter.
During the debate, Om Puri not only got up and left mid-way, but also started getting trolled on Twitter for his statements.
Now this was a complete shocker from a veteran like Om Puri.
