Salman Khan has apparently said that training for his wrestling movie ‘Sultan’ left him feeling like a ‘raped woman.’ There were a series of interviews lined up for Salman on Saturday evening last week at Mehboob Studios in Mumbai.
During his interaction with entertainment website spotboye.com, Salman Khan was asked about his experience of playing a wrestler in his upcoming film ‘Sultan’ and he said that he felt like a “raped woman”. It was in the second group interaction that Salman exclaimed out the rape comment. It was in response to a question on the hectic shooting schedule for film in which he plays a wrestler.
In an interview, when asked as to how difficult was it shooting for his role of a wrestler in the film salman said, “I used to feel like a raped woman.”
Salman Khan said, “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.”
Salman Khan added, “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. I would eat and then, head right back to training. That couldn’t stop.” Almost 50 journalists were present to interview the star and press interactions were divided in groups.

Salman Khan compared his shooting schedule to what a "raped woman" feels like. Is that worse than Lata-Sachin jokes, Bollywood?

That is everyone on Twitter except Salman Khan’s fans who have been strongly insisting he didn’t mean what he said:

However, his comment about feeling like a raped woman does not seem to have gone down well with many of his fans. Many took to Twitter to criticize Salman Khan’s comment Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what goes on inside the superstar’s head. Despite having had a string of well-known relationships, the actor claims he’s a virgin.
