Shatrughan Sinha reveals why he and Rajesh Khanna did not speak to each other for years

Shatrughan Sinha recently opened up about his feud with late actor Rajesh Khanna over politics. The late actor was unhappy with Sinha’s decision to contest elections against him in a by-election for the New Delhi constituency in 1992. At the time, Khanna was representing Congress, while Sinha was fighting for BJP.

Talking to a daily, Sinha said that he honestly didn’t want to contest against him but he also could not refuse BJP leader LK Advani. The senior actor tried explaining it to Khanna but he did not like it and the two ended up not talking for years. But later on they got back to speaking terms.

In the said election, Khanna defeated Sinha by 28,000 votes and retained the seat till 1996.

Shatrughan Sinha also said that he wanted to go and apologise to him but before he could do that Rajesh Khanna passed away. The Anand actor passed away in 2012.

Meanwhile, Shatrughan Sinha left the BJP in 2019 after being associated with it for two decades and joined the Congress party. “I saw democracy changing into dictatorship in the BJP… It has become a one-man show and two-man army,” he said at the time.
