Sarat Pujari will be missed by people concerned with environment.
Sarat Pujari, the doyen of acting in Odia film industry has taken his heavenly abode. Even though I did not have much connection with him, whenever there was a social cause and wanted to talk to him, he was just one call away. A great actor, humble yet a strong personality, Sarat babu will always be with us through his acting and gentle nature. He is a real star as I call it, whose words never smelled arrogance and ego.
I still remember his support and encouragement during the first ever Environment Film Festival in Odisha that we organised with CSE at Bhubaneswar in 2005. He always has been a supporter of environmental activism...
Rest in Peace, the Legend...
