Superstar Salman’s Sultan is breaking all the records at the box office, more than 200 crores and looks to extend its run at ticket window but also involved in a controversy over his “raped woman” remark.
In a press conference for Sultan, held at his Panvel farmhouse yesterday, the superstar was asked about the controversies that keep surrounding him. The Kick star said, something he says is liable to be taken to mean something else.
Asked if he feels controversies cannot touch him as his fans will still continue to support him, Salman said:
“No, I don’t think like that. To me, it’s the performance of the last film that matters. That does the work. The whole cycle begins from there again. Once that chapter ends, another one begins.”
Questioned him about the controversies, he quipped:
“So now should I give you something to survive for the next two weeks? If I don’t say anything, I am boring. See I understand your responsibility towards your job. But, if I say something, my people won’t like it”.
“So you guys tell me what you want me to do. If people are taking advantage of his silence, you reply, you don’t reply. People will still write what they want to. I may say something, it will be taken as something else. ‘Phir ek statement ko ghuma firake kya hota hai’ you also know. It’s sad.”
All the controversy started when Last month Salman told the press, “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 actor has not yet apologised for his comment.
