Shatrughan Sinha, a veteran Bollywood actor and a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member, on the 6th of February, shared his thoughts about the #MeToo movement, at a book launch event.

Mr. Sinha 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 have seen in this movement.”

Mr. Sinha spoke these words at the launch of A Touch of Evil, a book authored by Dhruv Somani.

Mr. Sinha said, he was lucky that his name did not come out during the #MeToo movement in India, despite his past deeds. He said, “I really call myself fortunate that in today’s times, despite everything that I have done, my name hasn’t come out in the #MeToo movement.” He also praised his wife, Poonam Sinha, and said, “I listen to my wife and often take her as a shield with me so that even if there’s nothing, I can show, ‘I am happily married, my life is good.” He further added, “She is a goddess and my everything. Even if anyone wants to say anything about me, please don’t say.”

Mr. Sinha concluded the press conference and asked the media to take his comments in the “right humour.” He also appreciated the courage of the women who came up and spoke about their stories of exploitation and harassment.

The #MeToo movement in India gave courage to a lot of women to voice out their stories. Social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook were the pens used by these women to narrate their stories out loud to everyone.

Bollywood celebrities, journalists, writers and directors like Chetan Bhagat, Alok Verma, M.J. Akbar, Sajid Khan, Nana Patekar and many others were exposed during the #MeToo movement.
