Read on to know what else Shotgun Sinha has to say

Indian actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha, who would be bestowed with a special award at the upcoming International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), said he was thrilled with the honour.

The 67-year-old veteran actor will be honoured for his outstanding contribution to Indian cinema at the IIFA awards this year, which is set to take place in Tampa Bay, Florida in the US at the end of the month.

“I am thrilled to get this acclaimed award. Its reward for my hard works as an actor,” said a beaming Sinha.

Sinha, popularly known as Shotgun Sinha, is presently busy with campaigning in Patna Sahib seat that will go to poll on April 17. He said he would dedicate the honour to people of east Indian city Patna. His fate in general election from Patna Sahib seat will be known only on May 16.

Turning nostalgic, Sinha said, “I had never thought to go this much in life. Its by the grace of God and love and affection of my family and fellow citizens of Patna, in particular and Bihar in general, where lies my root.”

“After receiving IIFA award at the end of this month at Florida in the US I will come back to Patna to dedicate it to my fellow citizens”, he said.

The award which the actor will receive at IIFA is similar to a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Sinha has acted in more than 200 Hindi films including Kalicharan, Vishwanath, Kaala Patthar, Shaan, Naseeb, Dostana and Kranti, which have made it big at the box office.

Well remembered for his powerful dialogue and the key word Khamosh, Sinha has rare distinction in Hindi film industry of successfully changing his image from a villain to a hero.

By bagging IIFA award, Sinha joins the ranks of several other luminaries of Bollywood, including producer/director Yash Chopra (Jab Tak Hai Jaan), director Ramesh Sippy (Sholay) and singer Asha Bhosle among others.
