Salman Khan sends reply to women panel, but ‘refuses’ to apologise


Actor Salman Khan has reportedly sent his reply to the National Commission for Women on the controversial rape remarks but has ‘not apologised.’

“We have received Salman Khan’s reply through his lawyer, he has not apologized, we are studying the reply,” Lalitha Kumaramangalam, the chief of the National Commission for Women, told the news agency ANI.

Khan had made the controversial comments in an interview to promote his latest film “Sultan”, which tells the story of an ageing wrestler trying to make a comeback.

“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,” the 50-year-old had said in the interview published on entertainment site SpoyboyE

Social media users were divided on the comments with many supporting the actor while others asking for punitive measures against him.
