The remark came during the poster launch of his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’ today, when Aamir was quizzed about Salman Khan’s recent ‘rape’ analogy.
Salman Khan had compared his condition after going through the physically tough Sultan shoot to that of a ‘raped woman’. “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,” he had said.
The remark was roundly condemned by one and all, with the social media especially erupting spontaneously. However, none of the major voices from Bollywood had reacted.
While Salim Khan, Salman’s father, apologised on behalf of his son after the strong reactions, the actor himself has not apologised for his comments.
National Commission For Women (NCW) has summoned the actor, claiming he is unapologetic. In a statement NCW chief L Kumaramangalam said “Salman’s letter (sent through his lawyer) is not at all conciliatory, there’s not even a hint of an apology”. “In fact he (Salman) tried to find fault with NCW for taking up this issue” Kumaramangalam said.
