REVEALED: Did Shatrughan Sinha Cry For Reena Roy?
The actor's biography reveals some untold details about his life…
Veteran Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha’s love life was unnervingly revealed in recently released biography Anything But Khamosh: The Shatrughan Sinha Biography. The actor was married to wife Poonam, but still emotionally and deeply in love with actress Reena Roy. In an extract from the book, Shatrughan’s close friend and producer Pahlaj Nihalani related an untold incident from the actor’s life, all the while endorsing wife Poonam’s dignified stance regarding Reena Roy. The extract published in an article in Pink Villa reveals:
"After Hathkadi, I was keen to repeat the same setup of Shatru, Reena, Sanjeev Kumar for my next film, Aandhi Toofan," divulged the producer.
"But Reena said a firm, ‘No’ to my offer. She said to me, ‘Tell your friend to make up his mind. If he gives me an answer, I’ll do the next film with him. Otherwise, it’s a “No”. I’ve made up my mind that if he doesn’t marry me, I’m going to get married in eight days.’"
In 1982, Shatrughan was already married to Poonam but was still emotionally bound to Reena Roy and wouldn’t cut off ties with her. “Sonu (Shatru) was shooting at night for a film called Telephone (1985) in a hotel in Juhu when I went across and repeated Reena’s message to him,” Pahlaj gave the details. “He called her up and cried like a baby. For the first time, I saw him cry; he was very emotionally involved with her. That was the one time I spoke up and told him, ‘Let go, let her get married.’"
