Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who sparked uproar in India by claiming his heavy training schedule for Sultan left him feeling “like a raped woman,” said on Thursday that he needs to talk less to stay out of trouble. Salman is the super star of the century.
All eyes were on Salman as he took the stage in Madrid alongside a handful of other top Bollywood stars to promote the International Indian Film Academy awards which will be held over the weekend in the Spanish capital.
“I know it has been a long evening, I will make it short, quick,” he said, prompting a woman in the audience to yell out, “No! Long!”
Salman then said, “I have to. Knowing me, the shorter I keep it the better it is.”
Here’s how Salman Khan reacted when asked if he’d apologise for ‘rape’ remark

The audience, made up largely of Indian journalists and entertainment industry workers, broke out into cheers and applause.
Salman, who has played a bad boy with a heart of gold in dozens of Indian blockbusters, made the controversial comments in an interview to promote his latest Bollywood movie Sultan, which tells the story of an ageing wrestler trying to make a comeback.
“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,” the 50-year-old said in an interview with Indian news site Spotboye.com published on Monday.
India’s National Commission for Women demanded a public apology, calling the comments “reprehensible,” following an outcry on social media where the hashtag #InsensitiveSalman has been trending.
