'What's the point of apologising under guillotine?'

Monday, July 04, 2016

Veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan has once again addressed the controversy surrounding son Salman's rape analogy, saying it was used by the media due to the "saturation point".

Salman had landed himself in soup when he compared himself to a raped woman while taking about the the physically gruelling shoot of "Sultan". The 50-year-old actor chose not to comment on the controversy despite repeated demands for an apology. However, yesterday his father, Salim, who had apologised on his son's behalf slammed the media for blowing up the issue.

"Normally people apologise to get rid of the problem but, I meant it hoping that the problem would be over. But the commercial compulsion of the media wanted to carry it to the saturation point. I regret not knowing this. The 80-year-old said it does not make sense to force someone to apologise. "What is the meaning of getting an apology from a person under the guillotine, who knows rightly or wrongly that he has not committed a crime," he wrote.

Bollywood celebrities including Kangana Ranaut, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Sona Mohapatra had condemned the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" star's remarks while many in the industry opted to stay silent on the topic.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will have a busy day at work but not much of appreciation or any rewards. Even if there is no apparent progress or growth in your work, do not make matters worse by seeking a change of starting a new project. You need to be patient and not complain but retain your job. Love and romance should get priority over other social activities, and responsibilities especially since you have been rather busy of late.
