Actor Sonu Sood has come out in defence of his Dabangg co-star Salman Khan, who has courted controversy for his rape comments, saying mistakes happen.

Several Bollywood and television celebrities have publicly condemned Salman, who recently compared himself to a raped woman during the gruelling shoot of his upcoming film Sultan. “Salman is a great guy... I think sometimes people say something... mistakes happen,” Sonu told reporters at the IIFA Rocks green carpet.

When asked since Salman is such a huge idol, he should have been more careful, the actor said, “I think everyone should be careful.”

Salman also walked the green carpet last night alongside manys stars but he chose to avoid the media.

Sonu is sharing screen with Jackie Chan in Kung Fu Yoga and the Happy New Year actor says the Chinese superstar is the most humble and grounded person he has ever met in showbiz. “I had a great time working with him. He is the most humble and grounded person I have ever met. He is a true legend.”

Kung Fu Yoga is a multi-lingual action-adventure comedy film directed by Stanley Tong. The film is a Chinese-Indian co-production and also stars Amyra Dastur, and Disha Patani.
