In his Bollywood career, veteran actor Amrish Puri played brilliant characters in one of the best films. Amrish Puri is often remembered for playing characters like 'Babuji' in the film 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' and 'Mogambo' in the film 'Mr. India'. Mogambo's famous dialogue 'Mogambo Khush Hua' from 'Mr India' is quite popular even today. Be it a child or an old man, he definitely adds this dialogue to his memorable moments.

Anupam Kher felt sad when he was removed from the film
Actually, this character was earlier supposed to be played by Anupam Kher, but for Amrish Puri, he was shown the way out of the film. This was revealed by Amrish Puri's friend and Bollywood actor Anupam Kher himself during a show. Anupam Kher had said- Amrish Puri was a very good friend of mine. It is very sad when we talk about our friend who is no longer in the world. He was a very wonderful actor.
After this, referring to the film 'Mr India' and Amrish Puri's character Mogambo, Anupam Kher said - Actually, the character of Mogambo was offered to me. After shooting for a few days, I was fired from the film. As an actor, it feels bad when you are thrown out of a film, but when I saw 'Mr India' and saw Amrish Puri ji's work as Mogambo, I realized that the filmmakers made Amrish Puri. Took the right decision by casting.
Let us tell you that Amrish Puri and Anupam Kher were very good friends. Anupam Kher used to tease Amrish Puri often with his funny style. At the same time, Amrish Puri used to call him a naughty child.
