What is your favorite Om Puri show?
I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who’s seen and loved movies #OmPuri Performance. Mine is his Ahuja #JaaneBhiDoYaaro. Half the truth is that Anant Velankar has no guilt. Long before we had Irfan and Nawazuddin, we had Om Puri. What an absolute genius! pic.twitter.com/0nH6K46c1a
