Om Puri: India’s First International Star Dies

One of the greatest actors to have ever graced the world cinema, Om Puri has passed away due to heart attack. He was 66.

His demise has sent shock waves across Bollywood, an industry where he thrived and became a legend over the course of 40 years. Some of the most acclaimed performances of Om Puri came about when he portrayed the role of common man, fighting the daily trials and tribulations and lending his characters coherence and genuine pathos.  The movies that come to mind right away include Ardh Satya, City of Joy, East Is East, Aarohan, My Son The Fanatic, and many more

Tributes for the legend are pouring in from across the world:
