In the rise of MeToo movement in India, many prominent people from the industry, as well as journalists, comedians and people from other fields, have been exposed. Many women not only from Bollywood but from the other industries as well, have come forward and narrated their traumatising stories of assault. It all started with Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar. Celebrities such as Vikas Bahl, Zulfi Syed, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Chetan Bhagat, Rajat Kapoor, Ronit Roy and others have been accused so far of sexual assault. Several celebrities have come out in support of all those who have shared their stories. Now actor Shatrughan Sinha opens up on the same and said that he is all for the #MeToo movement.

In a recent interview with news agency IANS, Shatrughan talks about how he has never harassed a woman in his 40 years of career. He said, “What happened to innocent until proven guilty? I am all for the #MeToo movement, never in my 40-year career have I misbehaved with any woman. I treat every lady with utmost respect. Having said that, I think this #MeToo campaign is being blown out of all proportion.”.

Shatrughan said that he does not mind working with Subash Ghai even if he is proven guilty of sexual misconduct. He wonders how everyone is fine working with Sanjay Dutt after coming out of jail but is not okay in this case. “Even if he is proven guilty, and he serves the punishment given to him, I’d work with him. Sanjay Dutt served his jail sentence and is back working in our large-hearted film industry. In fact, we had no problem working with him even when he was an accused in a serious case,” said Sinha.
“This hypocrisy I can’t understand. They have no problem working with Sanjay Dutt who has been convicted. But they want to blacklist people whose guilt is yet to be proven. Just to look like heroes of the #MeToo movement,” said Sinha.

From Alok Nath to Vikas Bahl, many popular names have been accused of harassment, sexual misconduct and even rape.
