In the year 2015 the legend OM Puri was invited to take part in the kasauli lit fest held at the kasauli club. With his shirt tucked out and slippers on his feet, Om Puri came to take part in the lit fest. He was not allowed to enter the club as dress code is being followed since the Britisher era. Om Puri was stunned with this and replied ” I have spent my life in slippers like a fakeer and now you want me to wear leather shoes”. Later he came back dressed formally to take part.
