Superstar Salman Khan, whose recent release Sultan has turned into a Rs 200 cr movie, has ignored the summons for appearing personally before the Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW). The women’s panel had issued the summons over his outrageous statement that he felt like a ‘raped woman’ and found it difficult to even walk after undergoing rigorous training while shooting this film.
This statement sparked furious reactions and calls were made for him to apologise, which he has steadfastly refused to do.
He skipped the summons from the women’s panel for the third time but sent a letter which reportedly shows that he has no intention of expressing regret.
According to Times Now, this has not gone down well even with his Sultan co-star Anushka Sharma who called his stand as being quite ‘insensitive’.
Take a stand, tell us what you think:
The MSCW has said that his latest missive is still being studied and that their legal department will decide what future course of action it will adopt.
Reacting to the defiance by Salman Khan, MSCW Chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar said, “We have received the letter. We have sent it to our legal department and will decide the future course of action.”
