Early Life

Shatrughan Sinha was born in Patna, Bihar, on 15th July 1946. His father, Bhubaneswari Prasad Sinha, and mother, Shyama Devi Sinha, had four kids – Ram, Lakshman, Bharat, and Shatrughan Sinha. Shatrughan is the youngest in the family. His father was a doctor who founded the Government College of Health and Physics in Patna.

Shatrughan completed his Bachelor of Science from Science College, Patna. Even though his father hoped he’d become a doctor, Shatrughan had his heart set on acting. So, after graduation, he pursued an acting diploma from the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune. Following that, he headed to Mumbai to kickstart his career in the film industry.


Shatrughan Sinha achieved great success in his acting career. Initially, when he arrived in Mumbai, he faced challenges and had to work hard to secure roles in films. Despite being a talented actor, he struggled to find opportunities and had to go through numerous auditions. Devanand offered him a role in his upcoming film, “Prem Pujari.” This marked the beginning of Shatrughan Sinha’s journey in Bollywood. In his debut film, he portrayed a Pakistani military officer and shared the screen with the superstar Devanand.

Subsequently, he played the role of a police inspector in the film “Sajan,” directed by Mohan Sehgal. “Sajan” was released before “Prem Pujari,” making it Shatrughan Sinha’s first released film.

In the early stages of his career, Shatrughan Sinha played villainous roles in films like “Rampur Ka Lakshman,” “Blackmail,” “Bhai Ho Toh Aisa,” and “Pyar Hi Pyar.” Additionally, he took on supporting roles in movies like “Khilona,” “Dost,” “Gambler,” and “Aa Gale Lag Jaa.” His versatile acting, both as a villain and a supporting actor, won the hearts of millions.

Shatrughan Sinha’s breakthrough as a lead actor came with the film “Kalicharan” in 1976, turning him into a superstar overnight. Some of his best films include “Shaan,” “Kala Patthar,” “Rampur Ka Lakshman,” “Mere Apne,” “Naseeb,” “Vishwanath,” “Jaani Dushman,” “Bombay to Goa,” “Naram Garam,” “Loha,” and “Kranti.”

Having acted in over 70 films, Shatrughan Sinha collaborated with prominent actors like Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan. His distinctive dialogue delivery style earned him the nickname “shotgun.” In the early days of his acting career, Shatrughan Sinha drew inspiration from legendary Bollywood actors such as Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor, from whom he learned valuable lessons.
