MUMBAI: Shatrughan Sinha, one of the leading yesteryear actors, is famous for his dialogue “Khamoshh." He is a man of many talents who has donned several hats in life. After his acting stint, he turned to politics and became a successful politician. Shatrughan married Poonam in 1980 and share three children together named Sonakshi Sinha, Luv Sinha and Kush Sinha. Poonam was also an actress and model.
Shatrughan Sinha was in conversation with Shashi Tharoor who happens to be a popular Congress leader and said, “I cheated on my wife, but only once, when I was caught red-handed.”
Shatrughan Singa continued and said, “My wife warned me and asked me to promise never to do it again. ‘Being a good husband, you won’t repeat it ever again’, she said. And being a very good husband, I didn’t let my wife know after that,” leaving the audiences in splits.
Shatrughan Sinha said that when he initially sent a marriage proposal for his wife, Poonam Sinha, it was rejected by her mother on the basis of his complexion. Shatrughan talked about how his elder brother Ram Sinha and director NN Sippy went to Poonam’s house with the marriage proposal. However, Poonam’s mother not only turned it down but was also angry at the two for coming with a proposal.
After marrying Shatrughan, Poonam largely stayed away from films. She was last seen on the big screen in Jodhaa Akbar, in which she played the mother of Hrithik Roshan’s character. Shatrughan, meanwhile, has shifted his focus to politics in recent years. He is a member of the Indian National Congress.
