Om Puri, Bollywood star, dies in Mumbai

Acclaimed Indian actor Om Puri, well known for his roles in hit movies

Gandhi and The Reluctant Fundamentalist, has died at 66 after suffering a heart attack. Puri died at his residence in Mumbai, the home of Bollywood, the Press Trust of India reported on Friday . He returned home on Thursday evening after a film shoot but his door bell went unanswered on Friday morning, following which his driver raised an alarm, it said. Puri made a name for himself in the 1980s with alternative art cinema that found a niche audience in India, playing several memorable characters that depicted the anger and angst of those times. He also appeared in a number of British films, most notably Richard Attenborough's 1982 epic on the life of India's independence movement leader Mahatma Gandhi. He also had a role in the Hollywood film Charlie Wilson's War.
