Mumbai, June 21: Bollywood actor Salman Khan's 'raped woman' analogy has not gone down well with people, even as the National Commission for Women (NCW) has asked him to apologise for the same within seven days.
"What does he know of rape? Salman must apologise for making fun of victims," she added.
Meanwhile, the actor's father Salim Khan took to Twitter to apologise for his son's remarks and said: "Undoubtedly what Salman said is wrong, the simili, example and the context. The intention was not wrong. Nevertheless I apologise on behalf of his family his fans & his friends. Forgiveness is to pardon the unpardonable or it is no virtue at all."

It began when Khan, who is currently promoting his film Sultan, was asked how difficult was it to prepare for his role as a wrestler to which he replied: "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. 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."
However Khan quickly realised his mistake and is said to have retracted his statement and apologised for the same.
