Actor Salman Khan, who sparked uproar by saying his heavy training schedule for an upcoming film left him feeling “like a raped woman”, said on Thursday that he needs to talk less to stay out of trouble.
Mr 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 on Monday.
The National Commission for Women demanded a public apology, calling the comments “reprehensible”, following an outcry on social media.
In the wake of the row, all eyes were on Mr Khan as he took the stage on Thursday night in Madrid alongside other top Bollywood actors at an event to promote the International Indian Film Academy awards which will be held over the weekend in the Spanish capital.
