It was a very heartfelt moment when The Academy Awards paid homage to the lost icon of Hollywood and they mentioned the name of Om Puri. Its really an honor and very sweet gesture by the Oscars. But the sad part is our Bollywood awards function didn’t mention the name of the actor during its any award function.
The method actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui expressed his anger on Twitter and said:
@TheAcademy #Oscars paid homage 2 late #OmPuri, But in #bollywood award functions nobody converse single word for his contribution… SHAME

‘In-Memoriam’ segment had Oscars paying homage to all the celebrities who passed away recently.
