Salman Khan Refers to Himself as a ‘Raped Woman.’Social Media is Horrified

Mumbai, June 21: To social media’s dismay, actor Salman Khan has apparently said that training for his wrestling movie Sultan left him feeling like a ‘raped woman.’

An interview carried by Spotboye quotes the 50-year-old star as saying, “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.”

Salman was speaking about filming the rigorous wrestling scenes in Sultan. This is what he said in his quote before referring to himself as a ‘raped woman’: “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.”

Later in the interview, Salman also refers to women as a ‘vice.’

It’s as yet unclear if the actor was misquoted, but Twitter has reacted with both fury and disbelief.
