The #MeToo movement took the entire nation by storm after Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. She was the one to begin the #MeToo movement in the country. After her revelation, many Bollywood bigwigs including Subhash Ghai, singer Kailash Kher, Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Rajkumar Hirani and others were in the alleged offenders’ list.

The movement got immense support from inside and outside the industry. On the other hand, many actors of B-town shunned the movement as well. Recently, actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha downplayed the movement. He 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 consider myself very lucky that in today’s time even after several instances, my name did not pop up in #MeToo movement. That’s why I always obey my wife or make her my shield when I step out of the house,” the actor-politician added.

However, the statement of Shatrughan Sinha hasn’t gone down well with a lot of people including the star of popular serial ‘Ishqbaaz’, Nakuul Mehta. Notably, Nakuul has been a strong supporter of the #MeToo movement. He took to Twitter to express his opinion on Shatrughan Sinha’s comments on #MeToo Movement.

He called Shatrughan Sinha’s comments ‘absolutely bonkers’ and also mentioned that the actor-politician didn’t need to be on the controversial ‘Koffee With Karan’ couch to say such a thing. Have a look at his tweet.

Not just Nakuul, Twitterati slammed Shatrughan Sinha for belittling the movement which surely was in the interest of women.
