Mini Biography :
Believe it or not, Amrish Puri wanted to become a Bollywood movie hero but failed a screen test in 1954. And what a failure it was! Mr. Puri went on to become one of the most renowned and credible villains in Bollywood’s history.

His most memorable and most-often quoted role as Mogamba “Mogambo” Khush Huva is still remembered from Mr India (1987). Shyam Benegal cast him in movies such as Nishaant (1975), Bhumika: The Role (1977), and Manthan (1976). Yash Chopra cast him in Mashaal (1984), the same year that Steven Spielberg cast him in his best-known role outside of India, as Mola Ram in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).

His elder brother is none other than Bollywood actor Madan Puri; Om Puri is his cousin. Amrish Puri died in Mumbai on January 12, 2005, due to a brain hemorrhage.
