Bollywood actor Om Puri, who also performed in Hollywood films such as Gandhi, City Of Joy and East Is East, was paid tribute at the 89th Academy Awards ceremony in the “In Memoriam” montage.

Om Puri won the National Award for Best Actor for the films Aakrosh and Ardh Satya. He received the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in India, for his services to the film industry. In 2004, he received an honorary Order of British Empire for contributions to British cinema.

Om Puri died after a heart attack last month in Mumbai. He was recognized for his deep baritone and versatile acting, as well as rough, pocked but distinctive face. He had empathy towards socially relevant cinema.

He was included in the annual montage along with Prince, Carrie Fisher, Gene Wilder, Patty Duke, Garry Marshall, Mary Tyler Moore, Anton Yelchin, Michael Cimino, John Hurt and Curtis Hanson.

People took to twitter to express their appreciation towards the tribute.
