Indian acting legend shares screen with Oscar winners
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
November 03, 2007
Of the Indian actors who tried their luck in Hollywood films, most of them were offered insignificant roles or roles such as an Indian tribal priest or some king in a fictitious epic movie. In the list of actors garnering some respect is Om Puri, who has managed to hold his place even in Hollywood, where he is given roles of much greater substance than the ones offered back here in India.
Om Puri

Om Puri is now back donning the role of Zia Ul Haq, the erstwhile Pakistani dictator, in Mike Nichols directed, Charlie Wilson’s War. In this movie, he will be sharing the screen space with Hollywood biggies, Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. His last attempt at playing a shopkeeper of Pakistani origin in the UK movie East is East won him accolades from all quarters. He will also be seen in Jag Mundhra’s Shoot at Sight, based on the Islamic terror attacks in the UK, where he plays the role of fundamentalist Maulvi, along with Naseeruddin Shah. Wonder why Indian talents never get due recognition back home?
