Veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan has once again addressed the
controversy surrounding son Salman Khan'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, slammed the media for blowing up the issue.
He took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter and here's what he wrote in a series of tweets:
"What is the meaning of getting an apology from a person under the guillotine, who knows rightly or wrongly that he has not committed a crime"
"But the commercial compulsion of the media wanted to carry it to the saturation point. I regret not knowing this."
"Normally people apologise to get rid of the problem but, I meant it hoping that the problem would be over."
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.
