Bollywood star hero Salman Khan is controversies favorite child. The actor who is waiting for the release of his upcoming film Sultan slated for release on July 6th has jumped into controversy again when he compared his training and shooting for the film to the condition of a raped woman during his interview with a media house.
“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,” said Salman.
Salman’s remarks did not go down well with many, who took to Twitter to express their anguish and slam the actor. Many have asked him to apologize for his comments. The star hero’s father and veteran writer Salim Khan has come to the rescue of his son and apologized on Twitter.
“Undoubtedly what Salman said is wrong, the simili, example and the context. The intention was not wrong. Nevertheless I apologise on behalf of his family his fans & his friends. Forgiveness is to pardon the unpardonable or it is no virtue at all. To err is human to forgive divine. Today on Intl yoga day lets not run our shops on this mistake,” posted Salim Khan on his Twitter page.
It remains to see how the veteran screenwriter’s apology goes down with Salman’s detractors!
