It’s been 13 years since actor Amrish Puri passed away and not a day goes by when we don’t miss his absence on our screens. Puri’s memorable performances in films like Mr India, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge are the stuff of legend.
Apart from films, he has also worked with renowned playwrights like Satyadev Dubey and Girish Karnad and he is also the winner of three Filmfare Awards. However, what stands out in a career spanning almost 40 years, are his villainous roles.
