Salman Khan has drawn the ire of a number of people for making a bizarre remark about his experience while shooting for the wrestling scenes in ‘Sultan’. The Bollywood superstar put his foot in the mouth thereby inviting trouble and brickbats.
According to a repor , Salman said, “While shooting, during those six hours, there’d be so much of lifting and thrusting on the ground involved. That was tough for me because if I was lifting, I’d have to lift the same 120-kilo guy 10 times for 10 different angles. And likewise, get thrown that many times on the ground. This act is not repeated that many times in the real fights in the ring. When I used to walk out of the ring, after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman. I couldn’t walk straight. I would eat and then, head right back to training. That couldn’t stop.”
However Salman quickly realised his mistake and reportedly said, “I don’t think I should have said that…”
And now, his father Salim Khan has finally arrived to his rescue.
The 80-year-old writer took to Twitter to clear his stand on his son’s rape remark. Salim condemned what Salman has said and, at the same time, mentioned that the intention behind this wasn’t wrong.
This has angered women and he has been asked by National Commission for Women to apologise within seven days.
