Kangana Ranaut slams Salman Khan over rape comment, terms it insensitive
While most Bollywood stars who are otherwise outspoken in condemning rape incidents are mum over Salman's remark, Kangana was one of the names to speak out
Actress Kangana Ranaut has slammed superstar Salman Khan's comment that he felt like a "raped woman" while shooting for "Sultan". She says it's insensitive on his part.
Asked to share her views on Salman's statement, Kangana said : "We all agree that it is a horrible thing to say. It's something which is extremely insensitive, but I would like to say that let's not encourage that mentality where you point fingers at each other and want to feel greater by pulling them down and rolling people down."
While most Bollywood stars who are otherwise outspoken in condemning rape incidents are mum over Salman's remark, Kangana said: "As a society, we have to take responsibility and stand united. And it is disgraceful for the society, not an individual."
"We all collectively feel sorry for that thought process," she added.
Kangana commented on the controversy at the premiere of a film "Kriti", where she was a guest of honour.
Salman courted controversy after he said during a media interaction that he felt like a "raped woman" walking out of a ring in his role as a wrestler in his upcoming film "Sultan". He later said, "I don't think I should have" and explained that he found it hard to walk.
