Jhalawar, city in Rajasthan where Om Puri wanted to spend his old age

Jhalawar is a fascinating city situated at the border of (south-eastern) Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. It was the capital of the former princely state of Jhalawar. Unlike much of Rajasthan, Jhalawar (once known as Brijnagar) has a rocky and water-laden landscape.

Om Puri wanted to settle here

The late Om Puri liked the city so much that he had decided to settle here after retirement. He had bought a two-storied house in Jhalawar.

“After retirement, I’d like to settle here. Its quiet and peaceful,” Om Puri.

However, that was meant to be. Om Puri died of a heart attack at the age of 66.
