Politician Shatrughan Sinha, who is back home from hospital after bypass surgery, says he is now under his daughter’s observation. The 66-year-old has been asked by his daughter, actor Sonakshi Sinha not to meet too many guests or use his phone. “There's only one woman I am afraid of. I can’t defy any command from my daughter. She has taken away my phones and put me under house arrest,” says the actor. Sonakshi, who made it big in Bollywood with the film Dabangg (2010), makes sure that her father continues to maintain the same diet and routine that he followed in the hospital.

Fondly called Shotgun, Shatrughan was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, in Andheri, Mumbai, on July 2 after he complained of breathlessness. Based on medical advice, the actor underwent surgery.

Now that he is home, Shatrughan says it’s the first time he has been away for such a long time. “I have never been away from home for this long. It’s been complete 40 days. Even the longest outdoor shoots during my career did not stretch that long. My wife (Poonam) and children (Sonakshi, Luv and Kush) were always there for me in the hospital. Thanks to them and my doctors, I am born again,” said the actor, who debuted in 1969 with the film Saajan.

Shatrughan is also the Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Patna Saheb, Bihar, and wants to spend time at his ancestral home in Patna, as soon as he’s allowed to travel. “As soon as I can travel, or rather my dear daughter would allow me to travel, I want to go to my home there,” he said. IANS
