A prayer meet was organized in the memory of late actor Om Puri at a Gurudwara in Andheri, Mumbai by actor Annu Kapoor and his sister Seema Kapoor (Om Puri’s first wife). Annu Kapoor spoke briefly to the media and clarified that there was no suspicion or doubts in his or his sister’s mind regarding Om Puri’s death.
“Many theories keep coming up. There are people who like spinning such theories. You all know in such high profile cases, our police is efficient in solving it. Woh sab masalaa saamne aa jaayega. Jo investigative agencies hain, woh apna kaam karegi aur sachhai saamne aa jaayegi. So for me to talk about it would not be right.” Said Annu.
Annu went on to add that, “We don’t have any doubts in our mind (over Om Puri’s death). If anyone else has any doubts and it reaches you (media) then that’s a different story. We don’t have the strength to think whether we should doubt anyone or not.”
Seema just said, “Sab kuch khatam ho jaata hai toh kuch bachta nahin hai kehne ko.” A lot of celebrities attended the prayer meet including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Dalip Tahil, Kabir bedi, Prakash Jha, Naseeruddin Shah with his entire family, Gulshan Grover, Mini Mathur, Prasoon Joshi, Poonam Dhillon, Vipul Shah, Govind Nihalani, Priya Dutt, Tinu Anand, Talat Aziz, Nandita Das, Premchopra, Deepak Dobriyal, Pankaj Kapoor, daughter Sanah Kapoor, Supriya Pathak, Divya Dutta, Mukesh Khanna, Randhir Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Tisca Chopra, David Dhawan, Anubhav Sinha, Shabana Azmi, Ashutosh Rana, Anil Sharma and Shreyas Talpade.
