One of the highlights of the evening was the reading of an excerpt from the book by Shatrughan’s daughter SonakshiSinha. Eminent politician YashwantSinha was also present along with filmmaker SubhashGhai.

‘Anything But Khamosh’ published by Om Books International is priced at Rs. 595.00 and is available at all book stores across the country and online.
Speaking on the book, Ajay Mago, Publisher, Om Books International said, “Some of my recurrent associations with Shatrughan Sinha are: a cop’s uniform, a cop’s jeep, a street-fighter, a baddie who evoked sympathy as he fell to a bullet, a social jaywalker in need of reigning in. But most of all, what stuck was his thin lanky frame, the strange mix of reverence and irreverence, uninterrupted dialogue delivery, stylish swagger, intense eyes, his signature scars topped by a booming voice imitating Prithviraj Kapoor’s ‘Khamosh’ from none other than a milestone in Hindi cinema—Mughal-e-Azam.”
