‘Om Puri: An Unlikely Hero’ – Biography of Om Puri Launched
Amitabh Bachchan launched Om Puri’s biography, ‘Om Puri: An Unlikely Hero’, in Mumbai. He praised Puri’s courage in revealing details on his personal life.
The launch was attended by many people from the film industry. Puri narrated some of his life’s moments.
Describing the launch in his blog, Big B wrote, "Facing a public audience can be a daunting task even in the most comfortable circumstances, but to his credit I must say his candidness became the most endearing moments of the evening."
The book, written by Puri`s journalist wife Nandita, was in the news after she disclosed about her husband’s relationship with various women.
"Overwhelmed by the realities of his own very humbling early existence, Om Puri choked with emotion as he narrated those moments with the honesty that most of us would perhaps never acquire," Bachchan wrote.
Big B joked about how he has become the most sought-after launcher in Mumbai and has developed a knack to conclude things quickly.
"As the official `book launcher` of the city I have now developed a knack of getting through these situations rather rapidly," he wrote.
Bachchan`s next book launch is a new detailed form of his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan`s `Madhushala` in memory of the poet`s 101st birth anniversary on November 28.
