Salman Khan, who stars inthe upcoming Bollywood flick Sultan as a Haryanvi wrestler, recently made a statement during an interview, comparing his shooting with that of the ordeal of a raped woman.
"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 interview published by Spotboye quoted the actor.
The 50-year-old actor was explaining about the hard training regime he had undergone for his character in the movie. "While shooting, during those six hours, there'd be so much of lifting and thrusting on the ground involved. That was tough for me because if I was lifting, I'd have to lift the same 120-kilo guy 10 times for 10 different angles. And likewise, get thrown that many times on the ground. This act is not repeated that many times in the real fights in the ring."
Twitter immediately reacted with fury.
Nehr-who? @threeinchfooll tweeted "I know Salman Khan has fans. But if his female fans are ok with his "I felt like a raped woman" then I've just lost faith in the world."
ananya @ananya1281 tweeted "So Salman compares a physically demanding shoot to a woman getting raped! #beingmoron #SalmanKhan #Sultanshoot"
Sultan is set to release for Eid this year. Anushka Sharma stars opposite Salman Khan in the movie
