Shatrughan Sinha- The Chhainu of Mere Apne

Shatrughan Sinha  (9 December 1945) who made his debut from 1969 film Saajan is in his 50th year in Bollywood. He was first signed by Dev Anand for Prem Pujari in a very small role of a Pakistani soldier but the film was released later.
He earned his stardom with Gulzar's Mere Apne (1971). As the rough-edged street don Chhainu, who hates rival Vinod Khanna's guts, Shatrughan's impact was raw but powerful. His dialogue from Mere Apne "Shyaam Aaye to Keh Dena ki Chenu Aaya Tha " attracted the Bollywood lovers. His deep baritone, his style and his fiery eyes everything made him the darling of masses.

He became the only villain in Bollywood who received claps from the audience when he beats the Hero. Mere Apne won Shatrughan Sinha labels like Wonder Boy and Wonder Villain. His career steamed full throttle and Sinha happily blustered his way in viperous roles in films like Rampur Ka Lakshman, Bhai Ho To Aisa and Heera.
As the rough-edged street don Chhainu, who hates rival Vinod Khanna's guts, Shatrughan's impact was raw but powerful. He amplified his hearty voice to the full. Costar Meena Kumari complimented him on his ability to deliver dialogues without pausing at the expected moments. 
Mere Apne was released during a year that was enriched by films like Anand, Amar Prem, Guddi, Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Tere Mere Sapne, Caravan, Buddha Mil Gaya. No awards came Mere Apne’s way but it remains a timeless classic for its realistic depiction of social issues.
After the role of Chhainu and its dialogues, Shatrughan Sinha became a craze among masses. As proof of his burgeoning popularity, Manmohan Desai was forced to heed his distributors and include a reformation scene in Bhai Ho To Aisa (1972). The public could no longer accept Sinha as an all-black villain. Sinha's style -- in the midst of an action-packed fight, he would take time off to check out if his watch was working -- suddenly made most villains look like they belonged to the age of the Flintstones.

Bollywood Actors with Forceful Voice and Dialogue Delivery

Bollywood had many Actors with a powerful voice and great dialogue delivery.As per my knowledge these people may or may not be equally big stars but their voice had an impact.In the present scenario Amitabh Bachchan remains the No one actor with a powerful voice and powerful dialogue delivery.A strange thing is that his voice was rejected by All India Radio for the Job of Announcer before joining Bollywood.In fact he made his film debut in 1969 as a voice narrator in Mrinal Sen's National Award winning film Bhuvan Shome.
Among the earlier actors Sohrab Modi, Prithviraj Kapoor,Murad,Jayant, Ajit and Raj Kumar were the actors with a powerful voice. Raj Kumar became popular for his dialogue delivery.

Prithviraj Kapoor
Most of us remember him with his powerful performance in Mughal e Azam but his most powerful performance was in 1941 film Sikandar. It was a Sohrab Modi film. Undoubtedly Modi's dream of making Sikandar would have remained unfulfilled had he not roped in another actor with equally powerful voice,Prithviraj Kapoor,to play the role of Alexander .His body language,modulation of voice and dialogue delivery made his role immortal.Prithviraj Kapoor used his booming voice to great effect that is extremely impressive,and continues to haunt film lovers.

Shatrughan Sinha (born Shatrughan Prasad Sinha on 9 December 1945) is an Indian film actor turned politician.He is an alumnus of the Film and Television Institute of India Pune.He got his first break in Bollywood by Dev Anand in Prem Pujari where he played a very small role of a  a Pakistani military officer ,Subsequently, he got a small role as a police inspector in Mohan Sehgal’s Sajan in 1969.This film released first so we can say that his first released film was Sajan in 1969.
Shatrughan Sinha had started making his presence felt in the film circuit within a year of his entry into the films. He was a bit loud-mouthed but his fellow actors were understanding his personality gradually. He became good friends with Mumtaz and Sanjeev Kumar. Mumtaz empathized with the newcomer Sinha and recommended him for a role in Khilona (1970). She helped him to boost his confidence during his early days. If the superhit Khilona brought him the much-needed recognition, Gulzar’s Mere Apne (1971) raised him to the pedestal of a star. He played the role of a street don who has bitter enmity with his rival Vinod Khanna. He was able to make that much-needed impact with this role and his co-star Meena Kumari was all praise for him.

Initially he played supporting roles in many films  and was appreciated as villain,His dialogues and style were highly appreciated by cinema lovers.He got the distinction of getting claps by the audiance when he beats the Hero of the film.

He became a hero later on and started playing negative as well as positive roles.His film Kaalicharan (1976)established him as hero. The movie proved decisive in his career and he started doing more hero roles after this. His heroine in the movie, Reena Roy, went on to star with him in many more films. The Ghai-Sinha-Roy trio delivered another hit right after Kalicharan in the form of Vishwanath(1976). Sinha then worked with the best directors of those times: Prakash Mehra (Jwalamukhi, 1980), Manmohan Desai (Naseeb, 1971), Ramesh Sippy (Shaan, 1980), Raj Khosla (Dostana, 1980) and Yash Chopra (Kaala Patthar, 1979). In Kaala Patthar, Dostanaand Naseed, Sinha and Amitabh Bachchan brought the best out of each other.

Shatrughan Sinha is a born Orator and was always a Peoples' Person - He reached the pinnacle of success as an Actor in a very short time. In the year 1974, Shatrughan came into meaningful contact with Lok Nayak Shri Jaiprakash Narayan Ji and experienced his Peoples' Movement.
This was a major turning point in his life, especially since Shatrughan always wanted to contribute to Society in whichever humble way he could. He joined the Bharatiya Janata Party and has been their biggest Star Campaigner for their Central as well as State Elections, using his charismatic persona & oratorical skills to the hilt.

Shatrughan Sinha is the First Member of the Indian Film Industry to become a Union Cabinet Minister, Government of India. He is also the only Non-Medical Practioner in the World to become a Health Minister - All thanks to his ardent commitment to the Social Causes of Anti-Tobaco and Anti-Drug Campaigns along with Cancer Awareness and Eye Donation Movements

He won the Patna Sahib Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar during the Indian general elections, 2009. He defeated another cinema celebrity Shekhar Suman. Out of a total of 552,293 votes polled, Sinha received 316,472 votes. He won the seat in the subsequent Indian general elections, 2014, as well.
