Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Feb 7 (ANI): Veteran actor and politician Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday said he was fortunate that his name had not popped up in the "Me Too" movement despite everything he has done. 
At a book launch in Mumbai yesterday, the actor said: "In the era of #MeToo, there is no hesitation in saying that behind every successful man’s fall also, there is a woman. I think I have been fortunate that despite doing all that I did, my name has not popped up in the MeToo (campaign)."
The actor promptly followed with a caveat requesting the audience to take his remarks in humour.
"Don’t take it otherwise. Please take it with a plain sense of humour. I highly appreciate, applaud the women who, better late than never, have come forward. I salute their courage and guts," he said.
Women from various walks of life, especially media and entertainment industry have leveled allegations of sexual misconduct against various prominent personalities including Subhash Ghai, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, Chetan Bhagat, Sajid Khan and Varun Grover among others in the wake of the #Me Too movement.
Junior Foreign Affairs Minister MJ Akbar is also facing multiple cases of sexual harassment, which surfaced in the same movement. (ANI)
