Remembering The Villain Who Won Hearts- Amrish Puri

"Amrish is my favorite villain. The best the world has ever produced and ever will!"

-Steven Spielberg


Today, on his Birth Anniversary, let us remember that man with a tall height, brooding shoulders, heavy voice and large eyes who not only made us hate him every time he played a villain on-screen, but also made us fall in love with his versatility every time he played a positive character- the Late Amrish Puri.


Here are some amazing facts about the respected actor, along with dialogues and characters that were made iconic by him.


1. Amrish Puri was born in Nawanshahr and graduated from B.M College in Shimla. Following the footsteps of his elder brothers Chaman Puri and Madan Puri, he came to Mumbai to star in Hindi films.
