My adversary on the show, attacking Hussain's painting and arguing for a censoring committee to school public morals, was Shatrughan Sinha. Affable, friendly, far more likeable in real life than on screen, the Bihari BJP actor-politician played to the gallery with filmi dialogues and speeches. When questioned by Anjolie Ela Menon and the audience about the immoralities in Indian cinema, in particular the endless rape scenes, Shatrughan declared proudly that he had never committed a screen rape in his entire career.
Rummaging through my memory files, I recalled a film from my school-days, called Shaitaan, in which he committed not one but about half a dozen, including that of Sharmila Tagore. Over to you, Shatrughan.
