While his marital woes grab headlines back home, Om Puri is relishing the company of Oscar winning co-star Helen Mirren in the scenic locales of Southern France. The 64-year-old actor is shooting for ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’, a Steven Speilberg and Oprah Winfrey production, which sees him paired with the British bombshell.
The actor’s personal life has been tumultuous of late, with the two women in his life, estranged wife Nandita Puri and ex-wife Seema Kapoor waging a very public war against each other.
In a telephonic conversation from France yesterday, the actor told that he is indeed enjoying the respite from his domestic woes. “I am far from the miseries of home and enjoying my stay here. I and Helen share a great rapport and that makes the shoot all the more enjoyable,” said the actor.
