Shatrughan Sinha has been dabbling in politics after a tremendously successful career in front of the camera, and the actor-turned-politician recently addressed the Aryan Khan drug-related incident that made headlines. Shatrughan Sinha told NDTV that he is fortunate that his children Luv, Kush, and Sonakshi Sinha are free of such vices.
When asked if celebrity parents find it difficult to steer their children in the correct direction because of their hectic schedules, the actor responded, “Chunauti ho ya na ho, aisa zaroor hona chahiye. Mera shuru se maanna hai, main toh preach aur practice karta hoon, anti-tobacco campaign karta hoon. Main humesha kehta hoon, ‘say no to drugs and shun tobacco’ (Whether it is challenging or not, they must guide their children. I practice what I preach, I am a part of anti-tobacco campaigns. I always say, ‘say no to drugs and shun tobacco’),” he said.
He further said, “Aaj main iss maamle mein bhagyashaali samajhta hoon ki mere bachche hai, Luv-Kush aur meri beti Sonakshi, main inn bachchon ke baare mein bohot fakhr se keh sakta hoon ki inki upbringing itni achchi hui hai ki inko kisi kism ki aisi koi habit ya aise maamle mein na unko kabhi suna hai, na dekha hai, na paaya hai na woh karte hai aisi koi harkat (I consider myself lucky that my children – Luv, Kush and Sonakshi… I can proudly say that their upbringing is so good that they don’t have any such habit. I have never heard them being associated with or seen them doing such things).”
When asked about Aryan’s bail, Shatrughan said that the legal system should be fair, but that no one should be singled out for their ethnicity. “Justice hona chahiye aur aaj wohi hua (There should be justice and that is what has happened today)”, he said.
