Shakti Kapoor's wife sees nothing indecent about his 'proposal' to a struggler-turned-female journalist on spy cam. "There's complete harmony at home," he says.

The screen baddie, who was apparently caught making promises of stardom to the girl in return for sexual favours, says he was falsely implicated in a sting operation orchestrated by a satellite news channel. Besides an overwhelming show of solidarity from the entire film fraternity, Shakti claims he's proud of the fact that his wife Shibani Kolhapuri and other family members have been unwavering in their support even after the damning video footage was aired on TV.

"At this difficult time, I am happy that my wife is by my side. She treats me as her only God on this earth. She is a typical Hindu woman who is very religious. She sees me as her 'Pati Parmeshwar' and the video has done nothing to change that image. All this false and distorted exposure has not shaken her confidence in me, one bit. In fact more than me, it is my wife who has jumped to my defence. If she has her way, she will go up to Mr Illiyasi and give him a good thrashing.

There's no editing in the tape: Suhaib

"There's not a single shot that's been edited in the tape. It's all intact. We have not distorted or edited anything to hide facts."

"Not just my wife, even my children, my sister-in-law and other family members are with me because they realise that what has been shown to people by Mr Illiyasi is completely one-sided. A man who has been accused of the murder of his own wife, who tried his luck in the film industry but failed and who himself has doubtful credentials, is in no position to expose anyone else. He should first look within and then talk about morality and ethics," says Shakti.

According to the veteran actor, there may be several reasons why he was entrapped. "Suhaib was upset with me. He wanted me to work in his film and I refused. He had told me at that time that he would take revenge," he alleges. 

Shakti also doesn't rule out political vendetta, since he campaigned for the Congress during the Lok Sabha polls last year. "The tape is forged and there's a complete misrepresentation of facts because a lot of things have been deleted to show that the girl didn't make any moves on me or made any offers. In fact it was she who did everything to provoke me for sex. I am sure some big opposition leaders are involved in the episode and they will be exposed very soon," he says.

Shakti insists he will bounce back: "Everyone is with me and the whole film industry is going to teach Mr Illiyasi a lesson. Many, including Pehlaz Nihlani, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda and Rinku are on my side and we will soon sue those responsible for such wrong deeds."
