Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has, again, found himself in a middle of a controversy, after making an alleged derogatory remark on women. Salman was quoted saying that he felt like ‘a raped woman’ while shooting one of the scenes in his upcoming movie Sultan.
Salman’s comment has faced such a fury that National Women’s Commission (NWC) has termed his statement ‘reprehensible’. The NWC has even asked Salman to make a public apology for the remark, and explain his statement within seven days.
After all the storm following Salman’s remark came into light, first it was father Salim Khan who came in for his son’e defence on Twitter.
The Sultan has maintained silence on the issue, and is yet to issue any statement, but his brother Arbaaz Khan has come out in his defence. Arbaaz said that Salman’s statement has been misinterpreted and his brother will issue clarification, if required.
“There are some things which we say while talking but we should look at the intention – why was it said? I definitely have no doubt that whatever Salman said, the intention was not wrong,” Arbaaz said, during the launch of the logo of his new film Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai.
Meanwhile, Salman has got a mixed response on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Film director Vivek Agnihotri wrote that there is no need to, while other users said Salman was misquoted in the media.
