Forgetting past political rivalry, Bihari babu Shatrughan Sinha met Sekhar Suman and sought blessings from the actor’s mother in the election to the Patna Sahib parliamentary seat in the eastern state of Bihar
Shatrughan Sinha sought blessing from Suman’s mother Usha Prasad on her 80th birthday at their home in Rajendra nagar here Sunday night used the dialogue of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachachan in film Deewar. ”I do not have maa (mother) and that is why I went to seek blessings from Suman’s mother,” he said.
“We have family ties for a long time,” Sinha said. Suman had unsuccessfully fought against Sinha in the Patna Sahib seat in 2009 which had caused some ‘strain’ in their relationship.
“It was not a personal fight against him, but against BJP in 2009. But, I later realised my mistake of contesting against him,” Suman told PTI and said Sinha was like an elder brother.
“The Congress tried to use its Chanakya budhi against me this time again, but I said no,” he said. He said that the Congress had snared Bhojpuri film actor Kunal Singh who, he claimed, would repent as the party had a use and throw policy.
Suman, whose TV show Pol khol besides a few Hindi movies were a hit, pledged his vote and support for Sinha.
