Salman Khan's unfortunate rape comment: Father Salim Khan apologises for it
Bollywood actor, Salman Khan is being trolled for a rather unfortunate comment he made while recounting his experiences from the sets of his upcoming film 'Sultan'. During a group interaction with the media in Mumbai, Salman Khan said that he used to feel like a raped woman after completing the shoot for wrestling sequence in the film.

"If I have to pick up a 120 kg person, and drop him down, I got to do it 10 times. In the wrestling match, it happens once or twice. Ten times from 5 different angles for 6-7 hours, either I am picking up or throwing him or he is picking me up and throwing me. It is like the most difficult thing. When I used to walk out of the ring, it was actually like a raped woman walking out. I couldn't walk straight. I would eat and then head right back to training. That wouldn't stop."

The comparison to the 'raped woman' stunned everyone at the event. The actor also realised the mistake. Then in an apologetic tone Salman said that he shouldn't have made that comparison. He also urged the media not to report the quote which he had blurted out by mistake.

But, unfortunately the 'rape' comment made by the Dabbang star was leaked and the National Commission for Women (NCW) slammed the star and asked him to apologise within seven days.

Lalitha Kumaramangalam, the chief of NCW said, "This is very sad. Just because he is Salman Khan doesn't mean he will make such a statement," as reported by ANI.

While, Salman has not apologised for his unfortunate comment, but his father Salim Khan has apologised on his behalf in a series of tweets:
