      Indian movie actor (b. June 22, 1932, Hoshiapur district, Punjab, India—d. Jan. 12, 2005, Mumbai [Bombay], India), epitomized the Bollywood villain. After a career of small stage roles and voice-overs, Puri was cast in Reshma aur Shera (1971; Rishma and Shera) when he was nearly 40. He gained notice playing a psychopath in Nishaant (1975; Night's End) and went on to make more than 200 movies over the next 30 years. Among his best-loved roles were those of the patriarch Babuji in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995; “Brave-Heart Will Take the Bride”) and Mogambo in Mr. India (1987). Western audiences knew him from his portrayal of the high priest Mola Ram in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).
