This comes as a big shock to the industry and everyone who has been a witness to the veteran actor’s work in the Indian Film Industry.
Om Puri is no more and the reason for his death is said to be heart attack. The actor was 66 years-old. On hearing the news, SpotboyE.com immediately called on his personal number, which was answered by a female voice. Sounding extremely disturbed, she said, “Om Puri has been taken to the hospital. Seema, his ex-wife, is extremely unstable to talk and even she has gone to the hospital.”
Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit was the first one to inform the unfortunate news on Twitter.
