Sonakshi Sinha claims her father to be well now

Shatrughan Sinha is a veteran actor of Bollywood and is affectionately called as Shot gun. He has delivered memorable performances in numerous super hit films such as 'Naseeb', 'Shaan', 'Kaala Patthar', 'Kalicharan' and 'Vishwanath' etc.  His presence on the silver screen has diminished in the past couple of years but the popularity hasn’t waned a bit. It was evident from the concern of his fans when he was admitted to the Mumbai hospital due to breathing problem.

Initially the doctors at the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai diagnosed the breathing problem is due to acute allergic response. However, the actor soon reported ailing health and was rushed back to the hospital again. A careful diagnosis revealed heart problem and he had to undergo bypass surgery. The operation was successful. The actor has been shifted to a personal room of the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital from the ICU (Intensive Care Unit).

The beautiful and busy actress Sonakshi Sinha was present at a promotional event for her upcoming sci-fi flick ‘Joker’. Replying to the reporters she stated that his father is well now after the successful bypass surgery on Monday. Claiming that her dad will be proud of the great work she is putting up for the movie promotion, she quoted "The promotions are not getting affected in any way; in fact, they are going on very smoothly. My dad will be proud of our good work. He is fine, that is all I can say."

The movie ‘Joker’ is the most talked about next big flick of Bollywood. It is supposed to be released on 31st August 2012. Obviously the frenzy surrounding the promotion is at its highest in the closing days before the release. The movie is directed by Shirish Kunder (husband of Farah Khan). Akshay Kumar is the co star of Sonakshi in the movie. Incidentally, the duo of Akshay and Sonakshi acted in the movie ‘Rowdy Rathore’ which is already a big hit of the year. No wonder they would like to repeat the success again.

Sonakshi commenting on the movie said "Our film’s uniqueness is our USP. I like sci-fi books and movies. I found the script very interesting and such a genre has not been attempted before. It was a very different experience for me. This is the collective effort of so many talented people. The movie is all thanks to their hard work."
