After Salman said these infamous words: “When I used to walk out of the ring after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman”, he was like:
Sorry banta hai boss…theek hai na? But it’s your life and your call. We can’t force you. Because we tried and we failed. It’s pretty clear that his well-wishers, like Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Arbaaz Khan, decided NOT TO SAY a word against him.
Dost ne dost ka saath diya. End of the story.
But Mr perfectionist, Aamir Khan, stood for what was rightly expected from him.

He said: “I wasn’t present when he made the comment but going by media reports, I feel what he said was unfortunate and rather insensitive.”
Well said. Now I ask, if Aamir, being Salman’s friend, can speak up against him, then why can’t anyone else? Why is everyone hiding behind diplomatic statements like ‘We are nobody to judge’ and ‘Let’s not add more noise to Salman’s issue’? Are they really afraid of him?
No, all these co-stars who supported him are afraid for themselves, they are afraid to speak the truth. In other words, they are simply cowards. I believe that no true heart can ever accept that Salman’s rape comment was justified. It was a mistake. A HUGE MISTAKE.
