Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha, who was admitted at Kokilaben Ambani Hospital last month, was finally discharged Sunday evening and left for home with his wife Poonam Sinha. The 66-year-old was admitted to the hospital in suburban Andheri on July 2 after he complained of breathlessness following some paint work at his residence. During investigation, blockages were discovered in his coronary arteries and based on medical advice, he underwent surgery.
Fondly called Bihari Babu and Shotgun, Sinha is known for his distinctive voice that helped him carve a niche for himself in Bollywood after making his debut in 1969 with Saajan. Some of his popular Hindi films include Kalicharan, Vishwanath, Blackmail, Dostana, Shaan and Kala Patthar. In his over four-decade long career, he has acted in over 200 Hindi films, apart from some Bengali and Punjabi movies.
