At Om Puri’s prayer meet on Monday, his ex-wife Seema Kapoor addressed the media along with her brother, actor Annu Kapoor. Annu said, “We don’t have any doubts in our mind (over Om Puri’s death). If anyone else has any doubts and it reaches you (media) then that’s a different story. We don’t have the strength to think whether we should doubt anyone or not.”

Earlier, a source told Bollywood Hungama that Om Puri consumed alcohol at night and was found in his apartment’s kitchen by his manager. The website quotes Puri’s friend as saying, “His faithful secretary and friend Mr Mishra raised an alarm when Om wouldn’t open the door. When they finally got in, they found Om on the floor.”
