Details for Anything But Khamosh - The Shatrughan Sinha Biography

"In a family of academics and doctors, and four sons named after the four brothers of the epic, Ramayan, the youngest and most pampered, Shatrughan Sinha (SS) stood out defiantly different. Studies were anathema to him; he was born to entertain and earn applause. In fact, he was born for the limelight. In the face of stiff opposition from a disciplinarian father, Bhuvaneshwar Prasad Sinha, and with the indulgence of older brother Lakhan who initiated SS to the fantasy world of Hindi cinema, mother Shyama Devi�s chhutka bauwa (little one) set out for the erstwhile Film Institute of India in Poona. Bombay would be the next logical destination. Without Kapoorian good looks or any connection with the Hindi film industry, the unknown scarface from Patna went on to create history on celluloid. In politics too, with no known surname or family to power his entry, he set a record as the first film star from India to be sworn-in as a Cabinet Minister twice over. Anything But Khamosh: The Shatrughan Sinha Biography, is a fascinating read that retraces the controversial journey of India�s most popular Bihari Babu. "
