Here is a list of his 5 iconic characters that will always be alive in the hearts of his fans and say- “Mogambo Khush Hua.”
1.Mr. India- Mogambo
The most frightening villain of B- Town so far. He just nailed it and nobody can forget this iconic character. The character was created by Javed Akhtar, and Mr Puri understood the pitch. Amrish Puri immortalised the character of Desi Hitler.
2. Karan Arjun- Thakur Durjan Singh
Do you remember Mujhko Rana Ji Maaf Karna? The film had several classic moments. Two Khans and Amrish Puri as the Villian what else you want for a complete Bollywood Masala? It was indeed a blockbuster and the craze is still not over.
3.Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – Baldev Singh
Jaa Simran Jee Le Apni Zindagi- This dialogue is stuck in our minds. Of course, Kajol and SRK were leading in the film and their classic romance is still an example for many youngsters, but it was Bauji who added so many colours to the film. The typical Indian father, who cannot comprise, but can do anything for the happiness of his daughter.
The film went on to become one of the most inspiring movies of all times. He played the character of a Chief Minister who ignores riots to protect his vote bank. As it is always said you need a strong Villian for a blockbuster film. He did it and the film became a blockbuster.
5. Baba Baironath in Nagina
He played the character of Snake Charmer in the film Nagina. The film was a blockbuster so does his character. Notably, Nagina was the solo-hit of the year. People loved Sridevi as Nagin and Puri who was seen as a Tantrik left a mark on the audience by his phenomenal acting.
