Veteran actor and politician Shatrughan Sinha is known for his brave statements; the man who kept calm on the #MeToo movement for a long time has finally broken his silence on the rise of this revolutionary movement in India.
Shatrughan Sinha put forward his views at a book launch in Mumbai, he said: “Today is the time of #MeToo, and there shouldn’t be any shame or hesitation to say that behind a successful man’s fall is a woman. Behind the troubles and infamy of successful men, there have been mostly women that I’ve seen in this movement.”
After Sinha’s statement, people were asking if he is making fun of the movement, the actor-politician said: "Don't take it otherwise. Please take it with a plain sense of humour. I highly appreciate and applaud the women, who, better late than never, have come forward... I salute their courage and guts. But beyond that, I don't want to go further at this hour because it's a book launch event and we should not cross our limits. But having said this, I understand what you are saying and I am highly supportive of what you said."
Sinha’s close friend Subhash Ghai is also facing the heat of the movement, therefore when he was asked if he would ever work with him, he had said: “If he is proven innocent, why not? Even if he is proven guilty and he serves the punishment given to him, I’d work with him.”
