Mumbai: Pressure is mounting on Bollywood actor Salman Khan over his rape analogy remark. On Thursday, the National Commission for Women (NCW) asked the actor to appear before it on July 8.
NewsX has accessed a letter in which NCW has said that Salman’s statement is derogatory and defamatory. NCW further says that such comments desensitise the plight of victims.
The row began when Salman Khan, in an interview to promote his upcoming movie Sultan, said “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.”
Salman is yet to apologise for his statement. However, his brother Arbaaz Khan and father Salim Khan have said that the intention behind the statement was not wrong.
