Slogan - - NEWS BUZZ -

Om Puri was a pow­er­ful ac­tor with a great body of work. But his per­sonal life was not that easy. His last film was the Pak­istani pro­duc­tion Ac­tor-in-Law, along with Fa­had Mustafa and Mah­wiash Hayat.The ac­tor passed away at 66. Here are some de­tails about his per­sonal life:

He mar­ried Seema Kapoor, the sis­ter of ac­tor Annu Kapoor, in 1991, but their mar­riage ended soon. Seema and Om knew each other for 11 years, since 1979. She lived in Delhi and Om in Mum­bai. They got mar­ried in 1990. But they did not re­main to­gether for too long. In 1993, he mar­ried jour­nal­ist Nan­dita Puri, with whom he had a son named Ishaan. In 2009, Nan­dita wrote a bi­og­ra­phy of her hus­band ti­tled ‘Un­likely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri.’ Puri and Nan­dita de­cided to live sep­a­rately with­out go­ing through a di­vorce.

Om Puri’s on­screen per­sona was very dif­fer­ent from his real life. His mar­i­tal is­sues of­ten kept him in the news.
