Google paid homage to the iconic Amrish Puri on his 87th birth anniversary with a doodle of course!

On June 22, a sketch by Pune-based artist Debangshu Moulik appeared on the search engine honouring the late Bollywood actor for his contribution to cinema.

The actor was the poster child for never giving up on your dreams; he landed his first role at the age of 39. He even made it to Hollywood starring in Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi and Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

He is most remembered for playing uber villain, Mogambo in the cult classic, Mr. India; the character's catchphrase line: "Mogambo khush hua" went on to become his signature. Puri passed away at the age of 72 in 2005.

Celebrating his life and work, Google said, "If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again—and you might end up like Indian film actor Amrish Puri, who overcame an early setback on the way to fulfilling his big screen dreams."
