Actor-producer Nikhil Dwivedi tweeted: “He was also a simple man. He wasn’t being articulate and for that, he was vilified and humiliated. Every contribution of his was forgotten by an ungrateful society in a whiff.”

“Happy birth anniversary to one of the few masters of acting in the history of Indian cinema. Om Puri,” actor Shashank Arora wrote on Twitter.
