Veteran actor Om Puri died on Friday morning after suffering a severe heart attack. The news came as a shock not only for the fans of the actor and but also for his friends in the industry. The veteran actor left behind a massive body of work like Arohan (1982), Ardh Satya (1983), Ghayal (1990) and many others. Om Puri was still going strong and had some good projects in his kitty. The actor was shooting for Kabir Khan’s Tubelight along with Salman Khan.
