Skipping chapters

Bollywood star Sonakshi Sinha says she is too scared to read her father Shatrughan Sinha's biography till the end.

‘Anything But Khamosh: The Shatrughan Sinha Biography’ by Bharathi S Pradhan was launched recently.

“I am too scared to read the book. There are certain things in a parent's life that the child just should not know,” Sonakshi said.

One of the chapters in the book reportedly has the ‘Shotgun’ talking about his off-screen intimacy with co-actor Reena Roy and how the relationship continued for sometime even after his marriage with Poonam.

Sonakshi said she has read the book till the point Sinha is about to become an actor, but doesn't wish to read on.

“I have read a few chapters in the start of the book that talk about his younger days, his childhood and certain things you skip out in a conversation which we didn't know. Now I am holding back from reading any further... I've reached the struggling days and the college and him becoming an actor. That's it. I am okay till there,” Sonakshi added.

Biographer Pradhan took seven years and a series of interviews with the actor-turned-MP and the people who have known him to write the book.

Sinha’s wife, Poonam, said she had to read the book to understand her actor-husband more.

“It was necessary to read the book because after reading it I felt I don't know this man... I wish I had known a lot of this.... ‘The Man I Didn’t Know’ would be a sequel to ‘Anything But Khamosh,'” she said.

In 2012 Sinha was hospitalised after he complained of breathlessness. The actor said he owes his “second life” to his “only” wife, Poonam.
