This time, he went too far.
During a shoot for his film Sultan, Bollywood actor Salman Khan expressed his level of exhaustion by comparing his condition to a 'raped woman'. This comment has left many appalled and disappointed in the actor.
People took to social media with their outrage and called for the actor to be punished for his actions. Their efforts seem to have been successful because the National Commission For Women (NCW) are now aware of the comment and have written to Khan asking why he made the comment and given him seven days to apologize for it, but will an apology be enough?
According to the Huffington Post India, here is the statement he made which included the comment to a journalist:
"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."
