Om Puri is no more. The 66-year-old actor breathed his last on January 6 following a heart attack. Puri was one of India’s greatest character actors having performed a wide range of roles in movies of different genres spanning 40 years.
Yes, Om Puri had his share of controversies. But even the most TRP hungry media house will not try to sensationalise or capitalise on his death like Kamaal Rashid Khan.
The motor-mouth Twitter celebrity who has opinions on everything under the Sun had this to say on Puri’s demise:
I feel OM Puri didn’t die natural death but Media killed him. Especially idiot journalist like Arnab Goswami who kept disturbing him for TRP

Was that a joke or is KRK high on something? Only KRK would know. Needless to say, he invited criticism:
@kamaalrkhan stop making mockery of him after the person has gone !!No one get cheaper than you for TRP

Perhaps KRK is very well aware that his tweet will generate controversy and so he intentionally demeaned the phenomenal actor and the journalist in such an abysmal manner.
Anyhow, there is a fine line between making oneself a fool on social media and making oneself look like a scum. With his tweet, KRK proved once and for all that he is the latter.
