Shatrughan Sinha reveals the reason behind his tense relationship with Amitabh Bachchan; Read on

In the early 70s and 80s, Shatrughan Sinha and Amitabh Bachchan were known to have a strong bond with each other. In fact, the two appeared several times together in talk shows and spoke highly of their friendship. But time faded their friendship and now, Shatrughan Sinha reveals the reason. He said in an interview that there were films which were offered to him first and then later given to Big B, but is that the reason for their fallout, Sinha says, "Not at all. All these things keep happening. Someone might be the first choice for a role, but it eventually goes to someone else. Perhaps the makers, at some point, realize that some other actor would be better for a role, or at times I couldn’t have taken a film due to date issues, which was the case with Sholay.”

 
He further added, "I think the character of Jai was one of the last ones to be cast. Ramesh Sippy was very keen that I do it, but I just couldn’t accommodate the film. Such things don’t spoil relations; even today, Ramesh Sippy and I are on very good terms,”
 
Then whom does he blame for their faded bond, Shatrughan added, “It’s the price you pay for stardom,” he said, adding, “I have nothing against Amitabh; I hold him in very high esteem and have only love, affection, and regards for him. Yet if someone asks, I say Chhodo kal ki baatein, kal ki baat purani. Naye daur mein likhenge milkar nayi kahani (Don’t talk about the past, let’s begin afresh).”
