Trust me, this is definitely going to make you cry. Om Puri, who passed away after suffering a massive cardiac arrest this morning, had already predicted his death a year in advance. Yes, we're not kidding you. An audio of Om Puri's 2015 interview with BBC channel is now going viral which clearly has the 66-year old talking about death and how he might just pass away in sleep one day. His exact words are, "I am not scared of death but I am scared of falling ill. When I get to see people turning helpless after falling sick and eventually getting dependent on someone else- now that's what fears me more than dying one day. You can't even predict death, you might just pass away in sleep one day. Others will know one day - Om Puri passed away yesterday at 7:22 pm (laughs). " And true to his words, that's exactly how Om Puri passed away this morning; fortunate enough, he didn't get a painful death.
