Shatrughan Sinha in his statement in favor of KRK said that one should not forget that he is a self-made man who, by the grace of God, has made his own place in the film industry.
The legendary actor praised KRK’s blunt style and thinking, this and his confidence is a big asset, it seems, he speaks freely without any fear or pressure.
He further said that KR, undeterred, spoke out for freedom of expression confidently within the ambit of law and constitution, whether his words received popular acceptance or not.
Shatrughan Sinha said that in my opinion KR seems to be a victim of a conspiracy of circumstances, God help him, I wish, hope and pray that he gets the speedy justice he deserves.
