Salman Khan Once Said, "I Used To Feel Like A Raped Woman", His Father, Salim Khan, Had To Apologize On His Behalf

Salman Khan stands as one of the most prominent figures in Indian cinema, with every move and utterance capturing headlines. Yet, there was a time when the renowned Ek Tha Tiger actor found himself embroiled in controversy due to a bold statement he made. This incident transpired as he was gearing up for the release of his movie ‘Sultan.’ During a promotional session with reporters, the actor’s words sparked outrage when he was quoted as saying, “When I used to walk out of the ring, after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman.”

This statement elicited strong backlash from numerous quarters, including prominent figures like Kangana Ranaut, Sona Mahapatra, and Renuka Shahane. Even political parties joined in, demanding an apology from Salman Khan. In an effort to mitigate the situation, his father, Salim Khan, attempted to cool down the heated atmosphere. He took to Twitter and expressed, “Nevertheless, I apologize on behalf of his family, his fans & his friends. Forgiveness is to pardon the unpardonable or it is no virtue at all.”

It’s worth noting that Salman Khan has faced previous legal issues, including accusations of causing the death of a homeless man in a hit-and-run incident in Mumbai in 2002. Additionally, he has been entangled in a court case involving charges of using unlicensed firearms to hunt antelopes in Rajasthan.

In terms of his career, Salman Khan’s upcoming project is ‘Tiger 3.’ Directed by Maneesh Sharma, the film also stars Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi. This third installment of the Tiger franchise is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu this Diwali. Moreover, Salman’s character from the Tiger series made a cameo appearance in Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ earlier this year.
