Shashi Ranjan has been using Shatrughan Sinhas' pictures in advertisements that promote his acting academy. Pavan Kumar, Sinhas' manager informed that Shatrughan Sinha is extremely unhappy that Shashi Ranjan used his name for a business venture without even consulting him once.
The camaraderie between Ranjan and Sinha dates back to 25 years when the latter hosted The Shotgun Show directed by Ranjan.
While the buzz is that Ranjan has off late been taking Shatrughan Sinha for granted. However, Shashi Ranjan has another tale to narrate. He said that Shatrughan's manager had even suggested that he should go ahead with the academy and a letter could be signed between him and Shatrughan Sinha.
