The NCW has asked Salman to apologise for his comment (Raped Women) within a week.
The National Commission for Women has taken note of Salman’s comment and asked him to apologise for it within a week.
Salman’s father Salim Khan, who has in the past also come forward in his son’s defense, apologises for Salman’s ‘Raped Women’ comment.
Salman courted controversy after comparing himself to a “raped woman” when he was asked to comment on his experience of shooting for his forthcoming film Sultan.
When Salman was asked how difficult it was to shoot wrestling scenes for the movie, he said: “While shooting during those six hours, there was so much of lifting and thrusting that it was unbelievable. If I was lifting a 120 kg person and dropping him down, I had to do it 10 times.
Salim Khan tweeted, “Undoubtedly what Salman said is wrong, the simile, example and the context. The intention was not wrong,”.
Nevertheless, my apologies on behalf of his family, his fans and his friends. Forgiveness is to pardon the unpardonable, or it is no virtue at all, Salim Khan added.
“When I used to walk out of the ring, I used to actually feel like a raped woman walking out… I don’t think you… It was most difficult… I couldn’t take steps. I would eat and then head right back to weight training. That couldn’t stop.”
The comment sent social media users into a tizzy, with many slamming the actor for his “callous remark” after a website, carried the detailed quotes of Salman Khan as an “interview” on Monday.
