Shatrughan Sinha with wife Poonam and their daughter Sonakshi. Poonam, said that she had to read the book to understand her actor-husband more. "It was necessary to read the book because after reading it I felt that I didn't know this man. I wish I had known a lot of this. `The Man I Didn't Know' would be a sequel to Anything But Khaamosh,'" she said. Sachin Gokhale/ Firstpost

Shatrughan Sinha, who worked with Amitabh Bachchan in films like Bombay to Goa, Parwana and Dostana, has talked about their bitter-sweet but strong friendship. "We have been friends for so long... These things happen. But it doesn't mean we carry forward the fight. I just wanted to tell people that in an honest biography, apart from black and white there is grey too," the BJP MP said.
