Zoom had the privilege of sitting down with the iconic star, Shatrughan Sinha, whose resonant voice, charismatic style, and acting prowess continue to linger in our memories. As we stepped into his legendary bungalow, Ramayan, nestled in Juhu on a scorching Mumbai afternoon, little did we anticipate the intensity of the revelations that awaited us.
In his signature style, Shatrughan Sinha delved into the realm of his storied career, shedding light on the friction and misunderstandings he encountered with fellow legends like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, and Rekha, among others.
Throughout the interview, there was an unmistakable aura of reverence and contemplation that often accompanies the narratives of true legends. In this episode of our latest show, ‘Legends,’ affectionately dubbed ‘Shotgun,’ Shatrughan Sinha bares his soul, leaving viewers spellbound.
One of the most riveting moments of the interview unfolds as Shatrughan Sinha unveils his reservations about the pivotal fight scene alongside the legendary Amitabh Bachchan in Yash Chopra’s ‘Kaala Patthar.’ Since the film’s release in 1981, rumors have swirled about the dramatic halt in shooting that ensued for four hours during this scene. Reflecting on the experience, Shatrughan Sinha shared, “Yes. Well, I couldn’t understand the axe that was placed on me and then Shashi Kapoor was supposed to arrive to separate us. Imagine if Shashi Kapoor was to arrive a second later! So yes, we had our discussions and finally it was done the way I suggested.”
The interview offers a glimpse into the illustrious career of Shatrughan Sinha as he reminisces about his interactions with luminaries such as LK Advani, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor, Subhash Ghai, Hema Malini, Sharmila Tagore, Neetu Kapoor, Reena Roy, Pahlaj Nihalani, and many more.
