Om Puri Trivia
Om Puri watched ‘East is East’ again before he came to Chandigarh and had revised the accent.
There was no way we could or would have made the film if Linda Bassett and Om Puri had been unavailable says the producer Leslee Udwin.
Ayub Khan Din says "I think Om Puri is one of the greatest screen actors in the world to day. It ‘s always a pure joy to work with him. I had no worries what so ever about taking his character GEORGE KHAN and painting on a bigger emotional canvas for him because one just knows that Om-Ji will instinctively understand what I’ve written and why it‘s been written."
Om Puri was nominated for a BAFTA ( male lead) for his role in ‘East is East’.
