It is true indeed; the B Town has lost a renowned actor. The 66-year-old Om Puri is survived by his ex wife Nandita Puri and son Ishaan. He was last seen in Sunny Deol’s Ghayal Returns and also featured in one of the biggest hits of 2016 The Jungle Book. Puri has given his voice to the famous panther Bagheera, in the film. He also marked his Pakistani film debut last year with Actor In Law and was also filming for Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House, which featured Gillian Anderson. His sudden death has indeed come as a shocker to the film industry and the actor’s fans.
