At the poster launch of “Dangal” here, Aamir was asked about his reaction to Salman’s comment which stirred up a hornet’s nest.
Aamir said: “”I feel…. I was not present there… (But) going by the media reports, what he has said is rather unfortunate or rather insensitive.”
Asked if he spoke to his “Andaaz Apna Apna” co-actor or gave him any advice, Aamir said: “No I didn’t speak to him… And who am I to give him advice.”
Salman courted controversy after he said during a media interaction that he felt like a “raped woman” walking out of a ring in his role as a wrestler in his upcoming film “Sultan”. He later said, “I don’t think I should have” and explained that he found it hard to walk.
His comment didn’t go down too well with a lot of people. The National Commission for Women (NCW) and the Shiv Sena even demanded a public apology from Salman. He sent in a letter to NCW via his lawyer but the organisation said it was not an apology.
Now Salman has been summoned by the NCW on July 8.
