Om Puri’s demise a big loss, says Sonakshi

Mumbai, Jan 7 (IANS) Actress Sonakshi Sinha termed veteran actor Om Puri’s demise a big loss for the film industry.

“It is a big loss for the film industry. Undoubtedly, his contribution is enormous to Hindi cinema. Om Puriji was a very good person too. It is a very very sad moment for us,” she told media on Saturday at a show on bodybuilding and fitness, touted as Asia’s largest.

On fitness, Sonakshi said: “Fitness has a huge impact on my life since the last year. More power to fitness and fit people.”

“Our life has become too stressful so it is very important to stay fit. I’ve done two action films back to back. I became fitter while doing these films. I am happy that I took a step ahead in fitness due to these films. Though my next film isn’t an action movie but I look forward to doing action films in future.”

Directed by Sunhil Sippy, her next film “Noor” features Sonakshi Sinha in the lead titular role. The film is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz’s novel “Karachi, You’re Killing Me!” and follows a Pakistani journalist-writer Noor’s misadventures and love life.

The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on April 21.
