18 October is the date Om Puri decided to keep as his birthday, since his mother didn’t recall the real date of his birth.
The actor who suddenly passed away in 2017 is remembered by his wife Nandita and son Ishaan. Join them as they tell The Quint about the man beyond the immensely talented actor and how he disliked being showered with extravagant gifts.
