Shabana Azmi: It was only fair that both Nandita and Seema be treated with respect at the venue of the tragedy after Om’s death

On Friday, friends, specially Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi rushed to Om Puri’s home after hearing of his death. Sources close to the tragedy say Shabana was the pillar of strength to Om’s bereaved family. They were the perfect co-stars. Om Puri and Shabana were together in monumental classics of our times including Roland Joffe’s City Of Joy, Shyam Benegal’s Susman and Sudhir Mishra’s Dharavi. And now, on his death she proved a perfect friend by managing a sensitive situation when both of Om Puri’s wives showed up at his home on his death.

Says a friend of Om, “Shabana made sure that there was no unpleasantness. She personally guided Seemaji inside to see Om’s body when Seemaji arrived, thereby avoiding all awkwardness in the situation.” Says Shabana, “I did what was the need of the hour. It was only fair that both Nandita and Seema be treated with respect at the venue of the tragedy after Om’s death. Both women conducted themselves with great dignity.” Shabana can’t get over the suddenness of the tragedy. “I did 14 films with Om and am deeply, deeply saddened by his death.” (Also Read: Amitabh Bachchan on Om Puri’s sudden demise: Death, that darkest moment of humanity took away another soul)

Om Puri was married to Seema Kapoor in 1990. They were family friends since 1970. However, their marriage did not last for more than a year reportedly due to his extra-marital affair with Nandita Puri. Seema moved out of his life and later he apologised to her at her mother’s condolence meet. He wanted to restart his life with her but Seema was not interested. Om Puri’s relationship with Nandita was also quite volatile and things worsened after she wrote details of his sexual escapades in the biography. He has a son from Nandita, Ishaan.
