Sinha made an appearance as a guest on the latest episode of Arbaaz Khan’s talk show, The Invincibles, where he spoke about his life and career.
Recalling his past, the actor said that his family, especially his father was against his decision to study acting at FTII. Being in an emotional state, he left home, and in the train to Pune, he spotted a ‘pretty girl’ sitting near him, however, he was also in tears for same reason.
He said, “It felt like a Godsend. We had no idea what was in store for us. I had no idea that I would study acting, struggle, then become a star, and remain in touch through all of this, until one day…”
Arbaaz noted that Shatrughan and Poonam Sinha weren’t in touch three years before they decided to tie the knot. Shatrughan said, “Yes, we had stopped talking. It was my decision. It was thought at the time that there was something else happening in my life, but I wouldn’t want to dwell on that. But it was my fault, I was looking for an exit strategy, and one day, I told her, ‘You’re too good for me, and I can’t be with you’.”
He continued, “It was my mistake. I got carried away, I became a victim of stardom. I used to think that no woman would ever be interested in me, and then, when they were, it’s human nature to lose control. Maine talaaq de diya, in a way… We completely cut off all contact, but I would come to know that she was enquiring about me, and my well-being. She would ask my staff to take better care of me, to feed me properly.” ALSO READ | SHOCKING!
