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.

He was selected to represent India in the 1936 Berlin Olympics but circumstances made him to stay home.He played the polished, sophisticated villain in nearly all his 250-odd films. He was always immaculate in his dress - a suit, overcoat, hat and cigarette completed his villain get-up.He had a peculiar style of his own,raising his eye brows, tough looks, loud and nasty talk, and horrible laugh - he always maintained a poised, cultured and soft exterior.
Whether it was Guru Dutt's Baazi (1951), Shakti Samant's Howrah Bridge (1958) or Vijay Anand's Teesri Manzil (1966), Singh sent shivers down people's spines.
