Shatrughan Sinha, a seasoned actor, will appear in the forthcoming episode of The Invincibles with Arbaaz Khan. On Thursday, Arbaaz unveiled the trailer for The Invincibles, episode 5, in which Shatrughan reflected on his early days in Bollywood. The actor acknowledged that he fretted about his appearance and came close to having surgery. Shatrughan mentioned feeling ashamed of his “imperfect looks” and claimed to have even spoken to a plastic surgeon about it.

Shatrughan Sinha, a veteran actor who is also a member of parliament and a leader of the All India Trinamool Party, received his education at the Pune-based Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). In 1969, he made his acting debut in Sajan. Since then, he has appeared in movies like Dulal Guha’s Dost (1974) and Gulzar’s Mere Apne (1971). He appeared in movies like Raaste Kaa Patthar (1972), Shaan (1980), and Kaala Patthar (1979) alongside Amitabh Bachchan, among others. Shatrughan mentioned in the teaser for his upcoming interview that he used to be self-conscious about his appearance.

Arbaaz Khan heard Shatrughan Sinha say, “Apni kati-phati shakal le kar aa raha hoon main filmo mein, kaise apni jagah banaonga, kya kaise karunga. Bahut humiliation hota tha mujhko. I used to feel extremely ashamed because I thought I was going into Bollywood with a less-than-ideal look. Plastic surgeon se bhi baat kar lee thi humne. I worried about how I would get by in movies with my face and what I would do about it. I even spoke to a plastic surgeon since I was so concerned).”

In an interview earlier this month, Shatrughan disclosed that he had to decline the original offers for the seminal movies Deewaar (1975) and Sholay (1975). Amitabh eventually received the roles. The seasoned actor admitted to Aaj Tak, “I have watched films that I regret. such as Deewaar. I was sorry I couldn’t participate in the film. For me, Deewaar was created. I had received it from them. I had the script for around six months. But because of certain creative disagreements, I gave the script back. Similar to Sholay, I was expected to complete it. My pal Amitabh Bachchan played that part. I was to fulfill their request. Some wanted to take on the position.
