Brother of Madan Puri
He shaved his head for the role of the villian Mola Ram in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984). It created such an impression that he kept his head shaved and became one of the most popular villains in Hindi Cinema.
Uncle of director Ramesh (Ramnesh) Puri. Madan Puri's son.
Although he was known for playing villains, he was described by co-star Harrison Ford as one of the nicest and kindest actors he had ever worked with.
