A day after making pitch for BJP veteran L K Advani as Prime Ministerial candidate, actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha, who created storm within his party by his opinions on Narendra Modi and his new election team, met Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday.

“Shatrughan Sinha ji came to meet me and to inquire about my health,” Mr Kumar told reporters.

Thanking the BJP Lok Sabha member from Patna Saheb also known as “Bihari Babu” for kind words for him, Mr Kumar returned the compliment saying “he (Sinha) is a great actor and a good human being.”

Notwithstanding the split in NDA and BJP going offensive against Nitish Kumar, the actor—turned—BJP leader had a word of praise for Mr Kumar saying he has brought development in the State and provided a new identity.
