Amrish Puri died of brain haemorrhage in Mumbai on Wednesday morning.
The veteran actor had not been keeping well since December 31, 2004.
Amrish Puri was born on June 22, 1932 and made his Bollywood debut in 1971 with Reshma Aur Shera.
The younger brother of character actor Madan Puri, he initially screen-tested for a hero's role in 1954, but the producer rejected him.
He then turned to theatre and also lent his voice to several advertisement jingles.
After Reshma Aur Shera, he had to wait a long time before filmmaker Shyam Benegal offered him roles in films like Nishaant, Manthan and Bhumika.
His career-defining role came with Mr. India in 1987, as Mogambo. The line, Mogambo khush hua, became one of the most famous in the history of Hindi cinema.
He also acted in Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Mujhse Shaadi Karogi -- also starring Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor -- was his latest release.
