The late veteran actor, Om Puri, who also starred in Hollywood films such as Charlie Wilson’s War and The Hundred-Foot Journey, was one of the actors who was featured in a special segment screened at the Oscars yesterday.
The special segment honored those who made major contributions to world cinema who passed away that year.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui (The Lunchbox, Bajrangi Bhaijaan) was quick to point out the irony of Bollywood award ceremonies not honoring the Indian screen icon while Hollywood did.
In a brief but nevertheless biting Facebook post, Siddiqui wrote,
“The #Oscars paid homage to late #OmPuri but in #bollywood award functions nobody converse single word for his contribution….SHAME”
Seriously, fuck Bollywood.
