Om Puri who died on January 6, 2017, portrayed Pakistani characters such as dictator Zia-ul-Haq in several films and was recently made the butt of joke by a Pakistani channel.

In the viral CCTV footage aired by Bol News, the channel claimed a man wearing a white kurta was the “ghost” of Puri. Liaquat claimed Puri's ghost was spotted outside his Mumbai home, seeking revenge against Ajit Doval, India's National Security Adviser.
SpotboyE.com spoke to Nandita Puri, (Late) Om Puri’s wife, said, “I haven’t seen the video per say. My friends told me about it. When they mentioned my first reaction was, ‘Good for them’. It’s all rubbish.”
Nandita confirmed, “Aamir Liaquat is a joker in Pakistan, who does these things for cheap publicity. What my sources have told me, he was given this from somebody in India in January and that time, Indian channels refused to take it. They must have realised that if they carry such a news, the nation will kill them because it is a very sensitive topic. These are the people who want to live on other people’s success. And what is trending now by Aamir Liaquat, is extremely disgraceful and in bad taste.
Om Puri had achieved heights and no one can match his toe nails also.”
“What Mr. Liaquat does makes no sense. Whole of Pakistan considers him as a joker. Nobody takes him serious. He’s a jerk,” Nandita concluded.
Mr. Liaquat, you really need to stop with these gimmicks to get your ratings!
