Getting judged for your dark complexion is something that a lot of people have faced in their lives at least once. Most of the time we associate such judgements with girls, who get rejected from the boy's side of the family for her skin colour. However, it was the other way round for Shatrughan Sinha, as had faced something like this before getting married to Poonam Sinha. 

Shatrughan Sinha, who had won the hearts of millions of girls with his acting and the way he used to say khamosh, had lost his heart to actress, Poonam Chandiramani. It was after a lot of efforts and wooing that the actor could get married to his soulmate as they tied the knot on July 9, 1980. The duo is blessed with twin sons, Luv and Kush and a daughter, Sonakshi Sinha.
