Mumbai, Feb 7: Actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday said that he is fortunate that his name hasn’t come out in the #MeToo movement despite everything that he has done.
“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’,” Sinha said at the launch of a book by author Dhruv Somani here in Mumbai.
He also appreciated the women who have come out with their stories of sexual harassment and rape, during the #MeToo movement, with guts and courage.
“I highly appreciate and applaud those women, who, better late than never, have come forward with guts and courage…,” Sinha said.
“Today is the time of #MeToo, and there shouldn’t be any shame or hesitation…,” he added.
