As Salman Khan remains ‘un-apologetic’ over his rape remark in his reply to the National Commission for Women, its Chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam said today, the panel is looking into it.
“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 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 said.
The Sultan actor landed in trouble when he compared his physical stress to that of a raped women. In an interview last week, 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.”
Meanwhile here is how Twitteratti reacted:
