Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is usually vocal about issues, has chosen to remain diplomatic on his reaction to Salman Khan’s “raped woman” controversy. He says he himself is “so inappropriate” at times.
At an event in Mumbai on Thursday night, Shah Rukh was asked to comment on the ongoing controversy.
He said: “In the last few years, I have realised that I made so many inappropriate comments myself. I don’t think I am someone to sit and judge somebody else’s comments to be very honest. It’s about taking sides or not taking sides.
“I myself say so many things, who am I to decide what one should do and what not? Whatever he wants to do, he will decide himself. Personally speaking, I don’t think I can make anyone to be making comments on this. I am so inappropriate myself.”
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.
This led to strong reactions from the National Commission for Women (NCW) as well as the Shiv Sena. The NCW even asked the actor to render a public apology and has now summoned him on July 8.
