When Nawazuddin Siddiqui was asked about Om Puri, Nawaz said, “It is very sad to hear this news. I think he was one of the best actors in the world. Two or three days from now I was going to do a scene with him in Manto. He was in the film and we had prepared for it too. He was playing the judge and I was going to play Manto. We were going to have a discussion, but it is a very big loss to the industry. It feels really bad.” The actor was supposed to shoot with Om Puri in a few days.
