Controversies  His first wife Seema was tortured and victimized, but she didn’t go public even after she got divorced.
 His Ex-wife Nandita accused him of domestic abuse, saying he beat her with a stick.
 Once his then wife Nandita claimed that Om Puri had sex with his maid Shanti at the age of 14. She has also exposed Om’s relationship with a woman named Laxmi with whom Om was sexually and emotionally involved. Om got upset with his wife’s statement and said that “My wife has reduced a very important and sacred part of my life to cheap and lurid gossip. I had shared these dark secrets with my wife as all husbands do. If she chose to make them public at least she should’ve made sure to maintain a dignity about experiences that are a valuable part of my life. Has she forgotten that I have a standing in society and I’ve worked hard to achieve all that I have today? I won’t allow her to throw it all away for the sake of sensationalism.”
 In October 2016, during a live news show, he said, “Who had asked the soldiers to join the army? Who told them to pick the weapons?”, for which, he was highly criticized.
