He is now 12 kg lighter, wiser and more health-conscious - veteran actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha, who has been in the hospital since a month, says he is raring to get back to normal, and admits he values his wife and health even more now.

"I've never felt better. I am raring to go back to my normal routine. I'll take it easy for a while after I am home again. The positive outcome of this experience is that I value my wife and my health, in that order much more than before. Not that I was ever careless," the 66-year-old said from the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here.

He says he doesn't even drink.

"I lead a regimented life. I do yoga every morning. I sleep early and wake up fairly early. I also had medical tests done regularly. So this freak health-hazard has not been caused by negligence and over-indulgence on my part," he said.

Shatrughan was admitted to the hospital July 2 after he suffered severe respiratory problem due to painting work at his residence here.

"It was probably the adulterated paint in our new home that brought on this condition. I was rushed to the hospital. I was sure I'd be discharged by evening. I dozed off at the hospital... I was oblivious for four days. I woke up on July 6," he recounted.

His condition took a nosedive July 16, and he underwent bypass surgery for "a couple of blockages" in his heart.

Now he says he is fine.

"By the grace of god, the excellent care taken by all the doctors and staff at this hospital, the good wishes of my fans and friends, and most importantly my wife's constant attention and prayers, I am now fully recovered. I'll be in hospital for a few days more for physiotherapy and tests before I am packed home," he said.

His stay in the hospital also made him realise the respect he commands in the Indian film fraternity.

"I got to know how much the film industry loves me," said the actor, who got visitors like Amitabh Bachchan, Ramesh Sippy and Akshay Kumar.

As soon as the 'Shotgun' is back to complete normalcy, he plans to start working on a film with Akshay.

"It's a subject that he has been desirous of doing with me for a long time. Akshay came and told me, 'Sir, ab to meri baat maan lijiye (At least agree to work with me now).' I've agreed. But he has laid down a pre-condition. Akhsay says our shooting shifts would be 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. I am game," he said.

    Its good that u realised it now and u r stil fit enough to share ur feeling with you,all old actors realise their worth when they get hospitalised,i m sure our rajesh khanna also must have realised his importance of being superstar when he got hospitalised but never got to share it us.
