Early life[ edit ]

Om Puri was born in Ambala in a Punjabi Hindu Khatri family. His father, Rajesh Puri, worked on the railways and in the Indian Army . [5] As he had no birth certificate or records, his family was unsure of his date and year of birth, however his mother told him he had been born two days after the Hindu festival Dussehra . When he began his schooling, his uncle chose 9 March 1950 as his “official” birthday, however as an adult when he moved to Mumbai, Puri looked up when Dussehra was celebrated in 1950, to establish his date of birth as 18 October. [6]

Puri came from an underprivileged background. When he was six years old, his father who was a railway employee was put behind bars on allegations of theft of cement. This resulted in their family becoming homeless. To make ends meet, Puri’s brother, Ved Prakash Puri, worked as a coolie (railway porter) and Puri worked in a local tea shop. [7] Thereafter, to help support his family, he had to start working at the young age of seven. He did odd jobs, worked at a neighbourhood dhaba (street side food stall), a tea stall and would bring coal from near railways tracks to support his family. [8] He and his brother’s children were later brought up by a maid servant, Shanti. [9]

While working, Puri continued to study. After his primary education, he joined the National School of Drama in Delhi to study theatre acting. A fellow NSD student who became a long-term friend, Naseeruddin Shah , encouraged Puri to follow him to the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune . [9] [10] In an interview with The Times of India, Puri later recounted his family was so poor that he did not have a decent shirt to wear when he joined FTII. According to Shah, Puri was disappointed by his education at FTII, and also was unable to pay tuition fees—when he became well-known, the institute followed up the debt of Rs 280, which Puri refused to pay due to the “impish thrill” of owing them money. [11]

Career[ edit ]

Puri’s first film was Chor Chor Chhup ja, a children’s film. During this time, to make ends meet he also worked at the Actors’ Studio, where future actors such as Gulshan Grover and Anil Kapoor would be his students. [7]

Subsequently, Puri worked in numerous Indian films, as well as many films produced in the United Kingdom and the United States. [12]

Puri made his debut in the mainstream films genre in the 1976 Marathi film Ghashiram Kotwal , [13] [14] based on a Marathi play of the same name by Vijay Tendulkar . [14] It was directed by K. Hariharan and Mani Kaul in cooperation with 16 graduates of the FTII. [15] He has claimed that he was paid “peanuts” for his best work. [16] Along with Amrish Puri , Naseeruddin Shah , Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil , he was among the main actors who starred in what was then referred to as art films such as Bhavni Bhavai (1980), Sadgati (1981), Ardh Satya (1982), Mirch Masala (1986) and Dharavi (1992).

He was critically acclaimed for his performances in many unconventional roles such as a victimized tribal in Aakrosh (1980); [17] Jimmy’s manager in Disco Dancer (1982); [18] a police inspector in Ardh Satya (1982), [18] for which he got the National Film Award for Best Actor ; [19] a humble husband in Seepeeyan (1984), [20] Vinod’s uncle in Zamana (1985 film) the leader of a cell of Sikh militants in Maachis (1996); as a tough cop again in the commercial film Gupt in 1997; and as the courageous father of a martyred soldier in Dhoop (2003).

In 1999, Puri acted in a Kannada film A.K. 47 as a strict police officer who tries to keep the city safe from the underworld—it became a huge commercial hit. Puri’s acting in the film is memorable. He rendered his own voice for the Kannada dialogues. In the same year, he starred in the successful British comedy film East is East , where he played a first-generation Pakistani immigrant in Northern England , [17] struggling to come to terms with his far more westernised children.

Puri in 2009

Puri had a cameo in the highly acclaimed film Gandhi (1982, directed by Richard Attenborough ). [17] [21] In the mid-1990s, he diversified to play character roles in mainstream Hindi cinema, where his roles are more tuned to mass audiences than film critics. He became known internationally by starring in many British films such as My Son the Fanatic (1997), East Is East (1999) [18] and The Parole Officer (2001). He appeared in Hollywood films including City of Joy (1992), [20] opposite Patrick Swayze ; [21] Wolf (1994) with Jack Nicholson ; [20] [21] and The Ghost and the Darkness (1996) opposite Val Kilmer . [21] In 2007, he appeared as General Zia-ul-Haq in Charlie Wilson’s War , which stars Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts . [20]

He has worked in Hindi television serials like Kakkaji Kaheen (1988) (roughly meaning “Uncle Says”) as a paan -chewing ‘Kakkaji’, which was a parody on politicians, and Mr. Yogi (1989) as a suave ‘Sutradhaar’ who enjoys pulling the protagonist’s leg. These two serials underlined Om Puri’s versatility as a comedian. He received critical acclaim for his performance in Govind Nihalani’s television film Tamas (1988) [18] based on a Hindi novel of the same name. He played comic roles in Hindi films like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro which reached a cult status, [20] followed by Chachi 420 (1997), Hera Pheri (2000), Chor Machaye Shor (2002), Deewane Hue Pagal, Chup Chup Ke, Kismet Connection and Malamaal Weekly (2006) and Oh My God. He was regular in films directed by Priyadarshan and Kamal Haasan.

His notable roles in commercial Hindi films included Drohkaal, In Custody, Narsimha, Ghayal, Mrityudand, Aastha, Hey Ram, Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha, Farz, Gadar, Lakshya, Dev (2004), Rang De Basanti, Yuva, Singh Is Kinng , Mere Baap Pehle Aap , Billu , Kyunki, Lakshya, Dabang, Bhaji In Problem, Khap, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Ghayal Once Again. Puri was seen in the role of Mohammad Ali Kasuri in Road to Sangam (2009). In 2010, he appeared in The Hangman . In 2011 he was in the Indian action film Don 2 .

He has also worked in some episodes of the TV series Aahat during the second season which was aired between 2004 and 2005 on Sony channel. Other notable television appearances included Bharat Ek Khoj , Yatra , Mr. Yogi , Kakaji Kahin , Sea Hawks , Antaral and Savdhaan India ‘s second season. [22]

In 2014, he appeared opposite Helen Mirren in the comedy-drama The Hundred-Foot Journey . [13] [20] At the time of his death in January 2017, he was working on the Marathi film, 15 August Bhagile 26 January. [23]

Several of his completed films released after his death including Viceroy’s House and Tubelight . [24]

Personal life[ edit ]

Puri married Director/writer Seema Kapoor, the sister of actor Annu Kapoor , in 1991, but their marriage ended after eight months. [25]

In 1993, he married journalist Nandita Puri, with whom he had a son named Ishaan. [26] [27] In 2009, Nandita wrote a biography of her husband titled Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri. Upon the book’s publication, Puri spoke of his anger at the inclusion of explicit details of his previous relationships. [28] In 2013, Nandita filed an allegation of domestic violence against him, and the two opted for a judicial separation shortly afterwards. [29]

His second wife reported that they kept a “secular house”, [30] but that “while Om is not ritualistic, he does not mind others being so”. [30] He took “solace in spiritual reading”, particularly in the writings of spiritual teacher Eknath Easwaran , many of whose books he shared with friends. [30] Puri seldom took politics seriously, and often found relaxation by cooking or gardening. [30] In an interview to Rajya Sabha TV in 2012, Om Puri spoke about his interest in agriculture and cooking, and suggested that his dream was to open a dhaba by the name Dal Roti. [31]

      Early life[ edit ]

      Om Puri was born in Ambala in a Punjabi Hindu Khatri family. His father, Rajesh Puri, worked on the railways and in the Indian Army . [5] As he had no birth certificate or records, his family was unsure of his date and year of birth, however his mother told him he had been born two days after the Hindu festival Dussehra . When he began his schooling, his uncle chose 9 March 1950 as his “official” birthday, however as an adult when he moved to Mumbai, Puri looked up when Dussehra was celebrated in 1950, to establish his date of birth as 18 October. [6]

      Puri came from an underprivileged background. When he was six years old, his father who was a railway employee was put behind bars on allegations of theft of cement. This resulted in their family becoming homeless. To make ends meet, Puri’s brother, Ved Prakash Puri, worked as a coolie (railway porter) and Puri worked in a local tea shop. [7] Thereafter, to help support his family, he had to start working at the young age of seven. He did odd jobs, worked at a neighbourhood dhaba (street side food stall), a tea stall and would bring coal from near railways tracks to support his family. [8] He and his brother’s children were later brought up by a maid servant, Shanti. [9]

      While working, Puri continued to study. After his primary education, he joined the National School of Drama in Delhi to study theatre acting. A fellow NSD student who became a long-term friend, Naseeruddin Shah , encouraged Puri to follow him to the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune . [9] [10] In an interview with The Times of India, Puri later recounted his family was so poor that he did not have a decent shirt to wear when he joined FTII. According to Shah, Puri was disappointed by his education at FTII, and also was unable to pay tuition fees—when he became well-known, the institute followed up the debt of Rs 280, which Puri refused to pay due to the “impish thrill” of owing them money. [11]

      Career[ edit ]

      Puri’s first film was Chor Chor Chhup ja, a children’s film. During this time, to make ends meet he also worked at the Actors’ Studio, where future actors such as Gulshan Grover and Anil Kapoor would be his students. [7]

      Subsequently, Puri worked in numerous Indian films, as well as many films produced in the United Kingdom and the United States. [12]

      Puri made his debut in the mainstream films genre in the 1976 Marathi film Ghashiram Kotwal , [13] [14] based on a Marathi play of the same name by Vijay Tendulkar . [14] It was directed by K. Hariharan and Mani Kaul in cooperation with 16 graduates of the FTII. [15] He has claimed that he was paid “peanuts” for his best work. [16] Along with Amrish Puri , Naseeruddin Shah , Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil , he was among the main actors who starred in what was then referred to as art films such as Bhavni Bhavai (1980), Sadgati (1981), Ardh Satya (1982), Mirch Masala (1986) and Dharavi (1992).

      He was critically acclaimed for his performances in many unconventional roles such as a victimized tribal in Aakrosh (1980); [17] Jimmy’s manager in Disco Dancer (1982); [18] a police inspector in Ardh Satya (1982), [18] for which he got the National Film Award for Best Actor ; [19] a humble husband in Seepeeyan (1984), [20] Vinod’s uncle in Zamana (1985 film) the leader of a cell of Sikh militants in Maachis (1996); as a tough cop again in the commercial film Gupt in 1997; and as the courageous father of a martyred soldier in Dhoop (2003).

      In 1999, Puri acted in a Kannada film A.K. 47 as a strict police officer who tries to keep the city safe from the underworld—it became a huge commercial hit. Puri’s acting in the film is memorable. He rendered his own voice for the Kannada dialogues. In the same year, he starred in the successful British comedy film East is East , where he played a first-generation Pakistani immigrant in Northern England , [17] struggling to come to terms with his far more westernised children.

      Puri in 2009

      Puri had a cameo in the highly acclaimed film Gandhi (1982, directed by Richard Attenborough ). [17] [21] In the mid-1990s, he diversified to play character roles in mainstream Hindi cinema, where his roles are more tuned to mass audiences than film critics. He became known internationally by starring in many British films such as My Son the Fanatic (1997), East Is East (1999) [18] and The Parole Officer (2001). He appeared in Hollywood films including City of Joy (1992), [20] opposite Patrick Swayze ; [21] Wolf (1994) with Jack Nicholson ; [20] [21] and The Ghost and the Darkness (1996) opposite Val Kilmer . [21] In 2007, he appeared as General Zia-ul-Haq in Charlie Wilson’s War , which stars Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts . [20]

      He has worked in Hindi television serials like Kakkaji Kaheen (1988) (roughly meaning “Uncle Says”) as a paan -chewing ‘Kakkaji’, which was a parody on politicians, and Mr. Yogi (1989) as a suave ‘Sutradhaar’ who enjoys pulling the protagonist’s leg. These two serials underlined Om Puri’s versatility as a comedian. He received critical acclaim for his performance in Govind Nihalani’s television film Tamas (1988) [18] based on a Hindi novel of the same name. He played comic roles in Hindi films like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro which reached a cult status, [20] followed by Chachi 420 (1997), Hera Pheri (2000), Chor Machaye Shor (2002), Deewane Hue Pagal, Chup Chup Ke, Kismet Connection and Malamaal Weekly (2006) and Oh My God. He was regular in films directed by Priyadarshan and Kamal Haasan.

      His notable roles in commercial Hindi films included Drohkaal, In Custody, Narsimha, Ghayal, Mrityudand, Aastha, Hey Ram, Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha, Farz, Gadar, Lakshya, Dev (2004), Rang De Basanti, Yuva, Singh Is Kinng , Mere Baap Pehle Aap , Billu , Kyunki, Lakshya, Dabang, Bhaji In Problem, Khap, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Ghayal Once Again. Puri was seen in the role of Mohammad Ali Kasuri in Road to Sangam (2009). In 2010, he appeared in The Hangman . In 2011 he was in the Indian action film Don 2 .

      He has also worked in some episodes of the TV series Aahat during the second season which was aired between 2004 and 2005 on Sony channel. Other notable television appearances included Bharat Ek Khoj , Yatra , Mr. Yogi , Kakaji Kahin , Sea Hawks , Antaral and Savdhaan India ‘s second season. [22]

      In 2014, he appeared opposite Helen Mirren in the comedy-drama The Hundred-Foot Journey . [13] [20] At the time of his death in January 2017, he was working on the Marathi film, 15 August Bhagile 26 January. [23]

      Several of his completed films released after his death including Viceroy’s House and Tubelight . [24]

      Personal life[ edit ]

      Puri married Director/writer Seema Kapoor, the sister of actor Annu Kapoor , in 1991, but their marriage ended after eight months. [25]

      In 1993, he married journalist Nandita Puri, with whom he had a son named Ishaan. [26] [27] In 2009, Nandita wrote a biography of her husband titled Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri. Upon the book’s publication, Puri spoke of his anger at the inclusion of explicit details of his previous relationships. [28] In 2013, Nandita filed an allegation of domestic violence against him, and the two opted for a judicial separation shortly afterwards. [29]

      His second wife reported that they kept a “secular house”, [30] but that “while Om is not ritualistic, he does not mind others being so”. [30] He took “solace in spiritual reading”, particularly in the writings of spiritual teacher Eknath Easwaran , many of whose books he shared with friends. [30] Puri seldom took politics seriously, and often found relaxation by cooking or gardening. [30] In an interview to Rajya Sabha TV in 2012, Om Puri spoke about his interest in agriculture and cooking, and suggested that his dream was to open a dhaba by the name Dal Roti. [31]
