PANAJI - Noted Bollywood artiste Om Puri has made truce with his wife, Nandita Puri after the much-publicised spat between the couple ever since the latter penned a biography on the veteran actor titled ‘Unlikely Hero: The Story of Om Puri’.
The actor clarified his stand on the book by standing alongside his wife Nandita here on Thursday.
He said: “While writing the book, she was very objective and detached from being a wife. She looked at the book as the author and she has done a wonderful job. She has brought out every single detail of my life. She has stripped me in public and I am very happy to be stripped by my wife.”
Om Puri had earlier spoken to the media blaming his wife for unnecessarily hyping his sexual encounters with maid while publicising the book.
Nandita also downplayed the recent tension between the couple.
“As I wrote it and moved ahead in the book, I came to know many things from his friends and colleagues in India and abroad, which I did not know earlier. It made me see the man he is, away from what I have perceived him as all these years. It is a very simple book and everybody should read it,” she said.
The book depicts Om Puri’s determination and perseverance in cutting through deep-rooted prejudices in the Indian film industry.
The book is compilation of his childhood, his work, success and achievements in India and abroad, on and off the screen. (ANI)
