Kangana Ranaut explodes at Salman Khan for his rape comment
Miss Bond of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut took a bold move against Salman Khan's recent controversial statement on rape and said that it was a horrible thing to say and one should not encourage such statements.

During the launch of Sirish Kunder's new web series 'Kriti', the Queen actress said, "We all agree that it is a horrible thing to say. It's extremely insensitive but I'd also like to say that we shouldn't encourage the tendency to point fingers at each other and feel superior by pulling each other down." 

She also said, "As a society, we have to take responsibility and stand united. And it is disgraceful for the society, not an individual. We all collectively feel sorry for that thought process."

However, other Bollywood feminists like Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha have not come out yet to condemn the 50-year-old actor's comment.

Salman rode into the controversy during an interview on his upcoming movie Sultan. While explaining a situation in the movie, he said that he felt 'like a raped woman' after his strenuous shooting as a wrestler in 'Sultan'. He was quoted as saying, "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."

This insensitive statement by the super star evoked a controversy on social media. The actor has also been summoned by the Maharashtra Women's commission on June 29th.
