I feel I need to clarify my position on the Big B, after Amit Chaudhary’s comment on the Om Puri knighthood. I am an unabashed fan! and those are some of my favorite films! Its interesting the Queen will tap Puri rather than the Big B, whose films are probably seen much more widely than anything Om Puri is in, and I mean by her subjects. Or that Roshan Seth is not the obvious choice, but then he plays intellectuals (Beautiful Laundrette) or leaders (Nehru in Gandhi), and speaks with a nice accent.
