Veteran actor turned politician Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday (Feb 6) said behind a successful man’s fall is a woman but clarified that he was not making fun of the #MeToo movement and his comments should be taken in “right humour”, adding that he is fortunate that his name hasn’t come out in the #MeToo movement despite everything that he has done.
“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.” “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,” he said at a book launch event.
“I really call myself fortunate that in today’s times, despite everything that I’ve done, my name hasn’t come out in the #MeToo movement. Hence, 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.'” “Even if anyone wants to say anything about me, please don’t say,'” he added.
