Oscar awards honored late Bollywood actor Om Puri who died earlier this year.
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, however took to Twitter to slam Bollywood award functions for not honoring their own talent.
One can certainly not help but agree with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Om Puri had the distinction of working for not only Hollywood and Bollywood, but also the Pakistani film industry.
This is what the actor’s family told Indian media:-
“The only Indian actor to have worked consistently in Hollywood and British cinema for the last 25 years, without a fuss and letting his work speak for itself, today the Academy of Motion Pictures acknowledged his contribution at its 89th Awards. The first and only Indian actor to be acknowledged thus. Thank you Academy. Thank you everyone. We miss you Om. We miss you lots.”
