Horrible, extremely insensitive thing to say : Kangana Ranaut on Salman’s rape remark

kangana-ranautKangana Ranaut publicly condemned Salman Khan’s ‘rape analogy’ which he made during a group interview for his upcoming film Sultan. But she also asked that the Dabangg star not be targeted for it.

Salman, during one of the promotional interviews for his upcoming film, talked about the gruelling shooting schedule, especially the physical aspect of the film which required him to wrestle with professional athletes. He went on to say that the sheer physical toll that the shoot took on his body, made him feel like a ‘raped woman’.

Kangana, who was attending the launch of Shirish Kunder’s short film Kriti went on to say, “We all agree that it is a horrible thing to say; it is something which is extremely insensitive.” However, she also added a word of caution saying, “But what I would like to say is let’s not encourage the mentality where we want to point fingers at each other and want to feel greater by just running people down by trolling them.”

Salman Khan has been the butt of jokes on the internet, ever since the quote was reported day before yesterday. It has been close to 24 hours, and the Kick star hasn’t responded with an apology or a clarification of what was said in the press conference. However, Salman’s father Salim Khan apologised on behalf of the actor. Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan also had a few words to say about Salman’s remark.

Kangana, on her part, talked about how the entire society should be collectively sorry about the thought process, and not just one individual, “What Salim uncle says is right, we are all sorry about it. It is not about an individual, we all collectively feel sorry for that thought process.”
