Mixed Responses to Salman Khan’s ‘Rape’ Comment

In a recent interview with Spotboye, Salman Khan spoke of his wrestling training sessions for his upcoming film Sultan, comparing the experience to getting raped.

Speaking about his shooting schedule, Salman Khan 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.”

This comment drew flak on social media, for his insensitivity in likening fatigue to a serious social evil.

Meanwhile, Salman Khan’s fans are unfazed by ‘Bhai’s’ statements, some going to the extent of bashing all the haters.

While Salman Khan supporters insist that he was misquoted, the chief of the National Commission of Women, Lalitha Kumaramangalam, has given him seven days to apologise for his crass statement.
