New Delhi: Reacting to ‘Dabangg’ actor Salman Khan’s recent remark about ‘raped woman’ pertaining to shooting, Bollywood actor and philanthropist Aamir Khan in a press conference on Monday said that the former’s remark was ‘rather insensitive’.
Claiming that he was not wary of the actual incident, the actor said, “I’ve only looked at the media reports as I was not there when it happened. Salman’s comment was rather unfortunate and rather insensitive.”
The ‘Dangal’ actor refrained from directly condemning Salman, but expressed his disapproval about the choice of words. Salman Khan, however, has still not tendered a public apology for the comment despite being asked by the NCW (National Commission for Women).
Author Advaita Kala, reacting to Aamir Khan’s comment, said that she did not want the news to become a testosterone-infused coverage of spark between the two acclaimed Bollywood actors. “The issue is that rape is being trivialised. Salman has to do a lot more than just apologise,” said the author.
Salman Khan, while speaking to a reporter, said that he felt like a ‘raped woman’ whenever he had to shoot a wrestling scene. Salman Khan has sizable amount of women fans all around the country.
