One comment described Om Puri as "an actor who gave new vision to cinema and gave India worldwide stature".
"Ardh Satya" - This was the movie that made his name, and fetched him the National Award for Best Actor. His contribution to Indian cinema saw a new cult of unlikely heroes being created, with movies such as Ardh Satya (Half Truth), Arohan (Ascent), Jaane Bhi do Yaaron (Let it go friends) and Aakrosh (Anger). He was born on October 18, 1950, to a Punjabi family in Haryana's Ambala district. He also grabbed some of the best scenes - especially the one in which he comes across Satish Shah propped in his coffin, thinks his auto has broken down and tries to help him. He plays a very important role in the film and that will remain an integral part of the film", she told the website, adding: "Om Puri was such a stellar performer, Kabir too is incredibly fond of him and the warmest person we have known.
Puri had appeared in the 2015 Salman Khan movie "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".
