Salman Khan’s insensitive rape remark

In June 2016, Salman Khan had landed in trouble post his interview where he compared his rigorous Sultan training session to the pain felt by a raped woman. He made his comments in an interview to promote his film Sultan, in which he plays a wrestler.

According to reports, the actor was quoted as saying, “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.”

Salman Khan received huge flak for the remark and was was criticised by the media and several Bollywood celebrities. This sparked off a huge debate with women rights activists and the outraged Twitter condemning him for such an insensitive comparison.
