The NCW had demanded a public apology from Salman Khan, calling his recent remarks “reprehensible”, following an outcry on social media where the hashtag #InsensitiveSalman trended.

Veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan has once again addressed the controversy surrounding son Salman’s rape analogy, saying it was used by media due to the “saturation point”.

Salman had landed himself in soup when he compared himself to a raped woman while taking about the physically gruelling shoot of Sultan.

The 50-year-old actor chose not to comment on the controversy despite repeated demands for an apology.

His father Salim, who had apologised on his son’s behalf, however, today slammed the media for blowing up the issue.

The 80-year-old Sholay writer said it does not make sense to force someone to apologise.

Bollywood celebrities including Kangana Ranaut, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Sona Mohapatra had condemned the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star’s remarks while many in the industry opted to stay silent on the topic.
