  • She first met Shatrughan Sinha on the midnight of 27 June 1965 when she was travelling from Patna to Mumbai after attending a wedding at her home. Shatrughan Sinha was travelling to Pune to join FTII for a course in acting. [2]Telegraph India
  • Their berths were opposite to each other and both of them were crying and sobbing because both of them were leaving their secure households.
  • At the time of their first meeting, Poonam was 12 years old and Shatrughan was 18 years old. In a magazine interview, he highlighted the details of their first meeting. He said that Poonam was wearing a skirt as she was still in school and he was wearing casuals. [3]Magna Mags 
  • He also said that he touched her feet when the train was passing through a tunnel to check that if she was real because he thought that she was too beautiful to be real. Shatru even wrote sweet nothings on the Madhuri magazine and gave it to Poonam at the station, which she flung away.
  • However, they met again after Shatru had graduated from FTII and Poonam had been crowned Miss Young India. They came across at the mahurat of Shatrughan Sinha’s film Mere Mehboob. When they realised that they knew each other, they started meeting and got into the relationship.
  • Initially, Poonam’s mother didn’t approve of their relationship and was not ready to marry off Poonam to an actor but due to the persistence of Shatrughan, they got married after 7 years of relationship on 9 July 1980. Shatrughan Sinha calls those 14 years as “years of exile” [4]Magna Mags
