People are known to be diplomatic in Bollywood and politics. But you are known for your candid remarks...
Very few people can be diplomatic, everybody can’t be Amitabh Bachchan. I generally I call a spade a spade and I am either famous or infamous for that. I don’t mince words, that is my USP.

You’ve carved a niche for yourself in Bollywood as well as politics. Which is closer to you?
It’s difficult to say that. Films have glamour and nothing else. Politics gives you power which gives you unlimited glamour. Films have glamour and comfort but politics require commitment and struggle. Cinema was my profession but politics is my mission.

Bollywood actor Shatrtughan Sinha, aka Shotgun Sinha has finally launched his tell-all biography, Anything But Khamosh: The Shatrughan Sinha Biography which was penned by Bharathi S Pradhan. But beti Sonakshi is afraid that with the truth about the actor’s life coming out in the open, she may have to face some inevitable fears. (HT Photo)

You seem to have buried your differences with Amitabh Bachchan. How did that happen?
We are old friends. Everybody drifts and has differences. Jawaani ka josh and stardom ka takaza hota hai. If you ask me today, I only have love and admiration for him. He is the only man in the entire country who I think is damdaar, shandaar and bejodh.

Do we expect to see you in films?
I’d actually like to work with Sonakshi but please recommend me to her (laughs).
