Amrish Puri is also well known for his versatile acting skills and making audience either hate him for his villainous characters or love him for his heroic roles. From Nagin to Mr. India and Karan Johar, his villainous laugh and acts made the character alive.

The actor was born in Punjab on June 22, 1932 and entered the world of entertainment at the age of 39.

Amrish had auditioned for a lead role in 1954 but was rejected. Later, he joined theater and did voice-over parts to groom himself and in 1971 he made his Bollywood debut in 'Reshma Aur Shera'. A decade later, he broke into Hollywood as Khan, a supporting role in the Oscar-winning movie, Gandhi.

Amrish was such an outstanding actor that once Hollywood director Steven Spielberg praised him saying, “Amrish is my favorite villain. The best the world has ever produced and ever will.”

Puri has worked in more than 400 films in over half a dozen languages—including Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, Punjabi, Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil, and English.

Entertaining his audience for over four decades, Puri left this world on January 12, 2005 after suffering from myelodysplastic syndrome.
