Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav, and Patna High Court Acting Chief Justice Iqbal Ahmed Ansari were among many who were present at the release of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former film star Shatrughan Sinha's autobiography 'Anything But Khamosh' at a function at Hotel Maurya in Patna on Friday.

The book was earlier launched in New Delhi by senior BJP leader and Sinha's mentor Lal Krishna Advani and by superstar Amitabh Bachchan in Mumbai.

The book offers a detailed picture of Sinha's life – his college days at Patna Science College, his days at Poona Film Institute, and his break in the Hindi movie world that led to his superstar status while also causing some rift with Bachchan who was creating ripples of his own when Sinha was at his peak.

Nitish Kumar, who like Yadav, has a friendly relationship with the actor despite being in the opposite political camp, praised Sinha on his life journey and the way he conducted himself through all these years.

"If you ever want to join a different political party, the door of Janata Dal – U is always open for you," the Chief Minister said.

Yadav, who has also expressed his desire in the past to have Sinha in his party, also jokingly said to the actor to break the 'khamoshi' (silence) after all and leave the BJP that, he said, had treated him anything but fairly.
