Recently, Shatrughan Sinha talked in front of an audience during a panel about his career and movie roles. In the 1970s, the veteran actor rose to fame alongside performers like Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna after making his acting debut in the late 1960s.

He transitioned to politics in the 2000s and has acted sparingly ever since. He is still active on social media, engaging Twitter followers in conversation on events and other issues.

The seasoned performer opened the discussion by reciting entire passages from his early filmography, which he remembered rather well. In Pyar Hi Pyar, Banphool, Raampur Ka Lakshman, Bhai Ho Toh Aisa, Heera, and Blackmail, he first appeared as a villain. His big break as a leading man came in 1976 with Subhash Ghai’s Kalicharan.

Shatrughan also responded to questions on the boycott calls for recent blockbuster Bollywood movies. He believed that it was difficult to stop individuals from disparaging another person or their work. Aaj Tak heard him say, “Social media has become really powerful today. Unfortunately, when it comes to show business affairs, baaki media rang nahi laa rahi hai (the rest of the media isn’t really bringing it up), especially after corona. [In] this empty space which has come up since corona, social media has emerged quite strongly. And why not? In social media, everyone has come to know the strength of their voice.”

The seasoned actor continued, “Kuch log ulta-sulta likhte hai, aur unko na jan sakte hai, na rok sakte hai, na tok sakte hai (Some people will write wrong things, and we don’t know them, we can’t stop them, or do anything against them). On social media, the troll army woh betahyee gayee isliye ke inke khilaf kuch prachar karo (the troll army has been kept specially to write against things). Uska kaiye baar, hum ya humare log, ya humari filmein shikar ho jaate hai (So often, the film industry and our films become prey to them).” Shatrughan also expressed his opinion that social media shouldn’t be banned.

Some high-profile Hindi films, including Laal Singh Chaddha and Pathaan, sparked internet protests the previous year. Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha did not receive as much acclaim as the boycott demands for Pathaan, the Shah Rukh Khan-starring film.
