Patna: Forgetting past political rivalry, `Bihari babu` Shatrughan Sinha met Sekhar Suman and sought blessings from the actor`s mother in the election to the Patna Sahib parliamentary seat.
Sinha, while seeking blessing from Suman`s mother Usha Prasad on her 80th birthday at their home in Rajendra nagar here last night used the dialogue of Amitabh Bachachan in `Deewar`.
"I do not have maa (mother) and that is why I went to seek blessings from Suman`s mother," he said.
"We have family ties for a long time," Sinha said.
Suman had unsuccessfully fought against Sinha in the Patna Sahib seat in 2009 which had caused some `strain` in their relationship.
"It was not a personal fight against him, but against BJP in 2009. But, I later realised my mistake of contesting against him," Suman told and said Sinha was like an elder brother.
"The Congress tried to use its `Chanakya budhi` against me this time again, but I said no," he said.
He said that the Congress had snared Bhojpuri film actor Kunal Singh who, he claimed, would repent as the party had a use and throw policy.
Suman, whose TV show `Pol khol` besides a few Hindi movies were a hit, pledged his vote and support for Sinha.
