Shatrughan Sinha’s voice oozes with genuine warmth while talking about his long association with Amitabh Bachchan. “He’s 80 years old, but he’s still going strong! Wow, Amitabh will always be an Indian cinematographer.” MahanayakHis longevity, energy level and enthusiasm are unmatched. We don’t meet as often as I would like. We are both busy in our own worlds. But whenever we meet, we meet like old friends. “
But what went wrong during the 1980s production DostanaApparently producer Yash Johar hit a wall with a clash of egos.?
The shuttle gun roars loudly. He doesn’t deny the difference. “look in Dostana When Kala Patthar Some of my scenes are missing. I don’t know what happened. I’m not blaming anyone. And honestly, those days are long gone. We are separate individuals now. “

Shatrughan Sinha would rather talk about happier times. “We did a great job together From Bombay to Goa, Dostana, Kara Patthar and other movies. Somewhere there was a difference. But he was and still is a caring and giving co-star who always cares about his co-stars. “
Shatruzi recalls an unknown event early in his career. “I remember when we shot our first movie together. From Bombay to Goa In 1972, Amitabh accidentally hit me in the face with his elbow and my nose started bleeding profusely. I was bleeding profusely. But he was more scared than I was. I had to calm him down, not the other way around.Then we did other movies together Kara Patthar When DostanaBut somehow things didn’t work out between us. “
By leaving the past in the past, Shatrughan Sinha said: we are best friends now. We don’t meet every day to gossip. But when we meet, he always welcomes me very warmly.” He panicked more than I did. I will never forget his worried and concerned look. Today we are both experienced, mature and hopefully wise souls. Somebody should write another movie for both of us. “
