The veteran actor will receive a special award at the upcoming IIFA awards

Shatrughan Sinha will be honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Indian Cinema award at the forthcoming edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards ceremony to be held in Tampa Bay, Florida next month.

Sholay fame filmmaker Ramesh Sippy, who directed Shatrughan in movies like Shaan and Zamaana Deewana, made the announcement on Thursday.

“This year, the Outstanding Contribution to Indian Cinema award will go to Shatrughan Sinha,” Sippy said at an IIFA press conference.

The annual gala, said to be Hindi cinema’s largest extravaganza abroad, will be held for the 15th time. This year, the event makes its US debut and will be held in Tampa Bay, Florida from April 23-26.

Lovingly called ‘Shotgun’, Shatrughan, an actor-politician, started his career in 1970. He is known for films like Kalicharan, Blackmail, Dostana and Shaan.

Nowadays, the actor is busy preparing to campaign for the Lok Sabha polls on a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ticket for the Patna Sahib seat.
