Actor Salman Khan is in trouble after he was talking about his latest film 'Sultan' at an event and said "I used to feel like a raped woman".
The Indian Express reported:
While expounding on how gruelling the shoot was, Khan has been quoted as saying: “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.”
Twitter was not kind in its reaction.

I know Salman Khan has fans. But if his female fans are ok with his "I felt like a raped woman" then I've just lost faith in the world.— Nehr-who? (@threeinchfooll) June 20, 2016
However, when his fans tried defending the actor, they clearly only made things worse. Bhai's fans rallied behind him as if it was their life's mission.
Fans claimed that while Khan was not misquoted, he immediately realized what he said and apologized.

Whatever it may be, we all know how things will end.
