Salman Khan’s rape comment is still taking the centre stage though he has not yet issued a public apology as demanded by several women organizations.
Another person who is not happy with his comment is Renuka Shahane who played Salman‘s sister in HAHK, She has strongly reacted to the actor’s comment about feeling like a “raped woman”, in the context of his gruelling shooting schedule for ‘Sultan’.
Renuka tweeted saying, “There is no consent in rape. There is consent in acting & actors are also paid for it. A rape victim has to pay forever! Be human please!” Considering she is a close friend of the actor and has known him for more than two decades, it comes as a surprise that Renuka didn‘t support the ‘Sultan‘ actor, but instead took a stand against him. Salman Khan‘s recent comment about feeling like a “raped woman”, in context of his gruelling shooting schedule for ‘Sultan‘, didn‘t go well with a lot of people.
There were few who chose to comment on it and Priyanka Chopra in a recent interview strongly disagreed to add more noise to the controversy for the sake of headlines and urged everybody to concentrate on real issues.
“First of all, you should be asking the person who made this comment. It is very important for the media and for us as women to use our power and talk about the real problem which is happening in India every single day to so many women instead of pushing a controversy for a headline, which is unfair. There is so much reality happening like a brutal rape case in Bihar took place – why is no one talking about the issue? A lot has been said about the Salman issue; I don’t want to add to the noise. I would rather bring notice on real issues. The real problem is us talking about how to treat our women better in India and how to treat women better generally,” she said.
Meanwhile there was an interesting comment by someone on the internet. He says: “How crazy people can be !! Leave him (Salman) alone ! English is not out language and am sure it was never said with an intention the way it is made out to be. Everyone unnecessarily criticising him should look at themselves and think …. Have a i ever said something which i never meant it the way it sounded. How can a person be on guard all the time. There are so many other issues that requires attention,” – CINEWS
