Guess who is making a biopic on Om Puri

The late veteran actor Om Puri was loved by all. From the very beginning of his career, he had always worked in movies that were unique and appealed to the masses.

In 2009, his wife Nandita Puri released a biography on him that revealed all his personal details and this did not bode well with the actor. The biographic was called “Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri”. When asked about the movie here’s what Nandita had to say, “I am adapting the book. I am making a biopic on Omji. I am taking part of the book and I am putting it as he wanted, as an inspirational story,”.

When asked about the star cast, here’s what she said, "it is difficult to do so. We are just at the developing stage of the screenplay. The script is the most important thing for a film,

When Nandita was asked about the movie and book here’s what she shared. “A few parts from the book and will mostly be throwing light on his struggle, the way Omji wanted. As a journalist, I had gone to interview him. He said, why don't you put my life story. He came from a very humble background. He worked at a tea stall at the age of six to put food for the family on the table.

His journey involved facing very difficult circumstances… From literally starving at FTII (Film and Television Institute of India)… If it hadn't been for Girish Karnad who gave him a film and he got Rs 3000 and managed to get through two years of FTII on that. It was very difficult.

Even veteran filmmaker Shyam Benegal had told me that when Omji was working in Mumbai, he was so poor and thin, he was down with jaundice and they used to think that he did not know whether the next meal was coming or not. From that, there are a hundred inspiring incidents from his childhood — how he overcame this, how he lived through it, how he surpassed it,".

Are you excited to relive the magic of Om Puri on screen again?
