Actor Salman Khan ignores summon from women’s commission on rape remarks


Actor Salman Khan has ignored the summon issued by Women’s Commission over rape remarks last month.

The Maharashtra State Commission for Women yesterday had issued summons for Salman’s personal appearance on 7 July after the actor failed to turn up before it to offer explanation for his rape analogy to describe the gruelling shoot for his upcoming film ‘Sultan.’


The NCW notice was issued after Salman during a media interaction had said that his gruelling workout for ‘Sultan’ left him feeling like a ‘raped woman’, a remark which evoked a sharp reaction from activists and others.

While Salim Khan, Salman’s father, apologised on behalf of his son after the strong reactions, the actor himself has not apologised for his comments.
