Om Puri had a great personality and sense of humour. He was a peace loving man. And was totally against war and violence. He always spoke in favour of Pakistan. And always brought up good image of Pakistan in front of Indians. After the recent Udi attack, which occurred in September, 2016. He was called upon in an Indian interview.
Om Puri faced many difficult questions on favouring Pakistan and working in Pakistan in their movies. He answered very blatantly and straight forwardly which Indians didn’t like a bit. And he started getting life threats from extremist groups of India like RAW and Shiv Sena. He was under severe pressure from such extremist groups and it is said that they were the ones to kill him. And he did not die due to heart attack.
