Shatrugan Sinha and Rekha

'Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna hai' directed by Ramesh Talwar is Sinha's home production under the banner of 'Shotgun films' which is "a mature romantic movie and ready for release shortly," the actor said here.

The 63-year-old actor said that he is doing the film with Rekha after 30 years of "strained" relationship. They were last seen in 1988 'Khoon Bhari Maang' however, the stars were not on talking terms during the shooting of the film.
"She (Rekha) went offensive on my some unintentional comments and we did not talk for 30 years before reuniting for the present movie," he said adding that his wife Poonam Sinha played a crucial role in breaking ice in our relationship
Despite hectic political engagements, the actor said that his love for films remains intact.

"I have not said goodbye to the movies...I manage time to do some selected ones," the actor said.
Sinha, who was among early Bollywood stars to venture into politics, joined BJP in early 80s at the highest peak of his film career.

When asked how he managed to divide time between shooting for the film and politics Sinha said, "I found time in between BJP decision not to renominate me for Rajya Sabha from home state Bihar for the third term and entering fray for the Lok Sabha poll to complete the shooting quietly."

"Through my hard work I manage to strike a balance between the real and reel life," he added.
