Salman Khan stirs controversy after comparing himself with a ‘raped woman’; admits his mistake

Mumbai: Salman Khan has drawn the ire of a number of people for making a bizarre remark about his experience while shooting for the wrestling scenes in ‘Sultan’. The Bollywood superstar put his foot in the mouth thereby inviting trouble and brickbats.

According to a report in dnaindia.com, originally attributed to SpotboyE.com, Salman said, “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."

However, according to a report in Bollywoodlife.com, Salman quickly realised his mistake and reportedly said, “I don’t think I should have said that…”.

Bollywoodlife.com apparently has the audio byte of Salman’s interview where towards the end, he realises that he had said something extremely unpleasant and felt they were uncalled for.
