Salman finally opens up on his "raped woman" analogy

Updated: Jul 15, 2016 18:28 IST

Mumbai, July 15 (ANI): After dodging questions on his much-controversial "raped woman" analogy time and again, Salman Khan finally broke his silence on the issue today and stated that statements often get twisted.

"I may say something, it will be taken as something else. Ek statement ko ghuma phira ke kya hota hai u know (You know how a statement gets twisted)," he said during a press meet here for the success of the movie.

"If I don't say anything I am boring. But if I say something my people won't like it," added bhai.

Further speaking about his response filed yesterday before the Maharashtra State Women's Commission, the 50-year-old actor said, "You reply or don't reply, people will still write what they want to."

The ' Dabangg' actor landed in a soup last month during the promotion of the recent blockbuster movie ' Sultan' where he 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."

Although Salman was quick to apologise immediately after the comment, his statement irked women activists and other human rights groups, who demanded an apology from the actor.

The actor's father Salim Khan and brother Arbaaz Khan had earlier come out in his support along with some other B-Town celebs stating that the intention behind the 'rape' remark was not wrong. (ANI)
