Actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha recently spoke up on the #MeToo movement and his comments were severely criticized. He had 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."

He further added, "I really call myself fortunate that in today's times, tamam harkate karne ke bawajood, 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 that I am happily married, my life is good."

His comments earned plenty of brickbats as Twitter went berserk. Even actor Nakuul Mehta tweeted, “This did not even need a KWK couch! Absolute bonkers.”

However, Shatrughan didn’t stay silent as he clarified his statement to IANS. Said Shatrughan, "Men are afraid to open their mouths in front of women. Pataa nahin kya bolne se kya matlab nikala jayega. I spoke in good humour about the fear of being called out, that all of us in the entertainment industry are staring at, and look at the way the nari protection brigade is out to prove me a lecher."

He further wrote, "I speak with the highest regard for all women, and stand by their right to be treated with dignity and respect. Don't forget I've two powerful women, my wife Poonam and my daughter Sonakshi at home. My sons Luv and Kush and I happily let them be the boss of our home."
