He always played the bad guy—and the public loved him for it. Before his recent death at age 72 from a brain hemmorhage, popular actor Amrish Puri proved that you can go a long way as a villain. He was best known to American audiences as Indiana Jones's arch nemesis, Mola Ram, in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. But Puri preferred Bollywood to Hollywood. He was in 212 films during his more than 30 years as an actor.
