Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who hasn’t apologised for his rape remark yet, has been summoned by National Commission for Women (NCW) on July 8.
NCW chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam said, “We have issued summons to Salman Khan. He has been asked to appear before the Commission on July 8. His remarks are unfortunate and it would be unfair to too many women if we don’t take a strong stand on the issue.”
Though Khan’s lawyer sent a reply to NCW, the commission says it was unsatisfactory and not apologetic in tone.
“His response was unsatisfactory. It was not apologetic in tone. By that I mean he did not express any regret and in fact questioned the Commission on whether we had heard the whole recording and the need to take cognizance,” she said.
Khan stirred a controversy when he said that after the rigorous shoot for Sultan, he used to feel like a raped woman. He couldn’t walk straight. Though he was earlier summoned by Maharashtra State Women’s Commission, he skipped it.
