Shatrughan Sinha the mega star of the 70’s who gave a tough time to his contemporary stars like the ruling superstar of the 70’s Rajesh Khanna to the upcoming superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been a self made star and his rise from rags to riches is truly inspirational.
In fact the South super Rajinikanth too owes his stardom to Shatrughan Sinha, whose style and dynamic mannerism Rajinikanth aped bluntly and even today acknowledges openly.
Shatrughan Sinha’s biography written by famous journalist Bharathi S Pradhan is aptly titled 'Anything But Khamosh because the biography daringly exposes the darker side of the actor turned politician.
Briefing media about his biographies which boldly exposes his clandestine affairs with his female co-stars like Reena Roy, with whom he even continued his affair after marriage, Sinha said, “I have been honest in speaking the truth and I believe it is the truth that makes my biography fascinating and spellbinding tale.”
However he adds, “Though I have mentioned about my various love affairs in my biography with many actresses but I have taken care not to hurt anybody's self-esteem. Also I have avoided that there is no offensiveness in the book. They are settled, have children. It’s not the right thing to identify them.”
Another highlight of the biography is that it includes nasty comments from his critics because during his hey days Shatrughan Sinha was known for his arrogance, egotism, late schedules, flirting and pompous behavior.
Speaking about the negative strides of his personality in the biography Sinha said, "Grey areas must be covered. If you don't do that then it becomes sycophancy. If I wanted I could edit comments by people who spoke against me but I didn't. It's a democracy so let them say whatever they have to say."
