In his reply over the ‘raped woman’ comment, Salman Khan does not seem to be apologetic, says NCW Chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam. The panel chief said today that now the commission is going to take the issue to next level.
“Salman Khan has sent a reply and it is not apologetic in tenor. We now need to decide what we are going to do next. We have to look at both what comes under our mandate and what are the legalities involved”, said Lalitha Kumaramangalam
“We are not going to give out the details of Salman Khan’s reply now. We need to first go through it in detail, along with our lawyers. Only then will both his reply and what we are going to do next will be made public,” she added
The controversy broke when the 50 year old actor was giving an interview, to promote his upcoming film Sultan which is set to release on 6 July 2016. In the interview, Salman Khan was talking about his hectic shooting schedule for his upcoming movie and while explaining how grueling the shoot was, he let slip this bombshell: “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 form 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.”
Reacting to this, NCW had sent a notice to the actor’s residence demanding a public apology within 7 days, now the Sultan actor has replied through his lawyer in a mail last evening
“The reply has come from his lawyer, which means it is a legal reply. So we can’t just reply off the cuff,” Kumaramangalam said.
