Salman’s remark on rape insensitive, says friend Aamir

Actor-producer Aamir Khan, who on Monday said his friendSalman Khan’s ‘raped woman’ comment was unfortunate and insensitive, likened himself to a waiter and immediately apologised.

At the poster launch of his film ‘Dangal’ here, Aamir was asked about his reaction to Salman’s comment that he felt like a ‘raped woman’ while walking out of a ring in his role as a wrestler in his upcoming film ‘Sultan’.While Salman had later said about making the comment, “I don’t think I should have” and explained that he found it hard to walk, the damage was done.

“I feel…. I was not present there.(But) going by the media reports, what he has said is rather unfortunate or rather insensitive,” said Aamir. Asked if he spoke to his ‘Andaaz Apna Apna’ co-actor or gave him any advice, Aamir said, “No I didn’t speak to him. And who am I to give him advice.”
Aamir also said that Salman has always been a bigger star than him. “I feel Shah Rukh, Salman, Amitabh Bachchan are big ger stars. There are a host of stars who I consider big and this includes Hrithik (Ros han), Ranbir (Kapoor) and Ranveer (Singh). There are so many stars who are hugely po pular. I don’t get into comparisons,” he said.
Then, he likened himself to a waiter while comparing him self with Salman. “When I see Salman walking into a room, it feels like a star has ar rived. When I enter it looks as if some waiter has entered,” he said.
However, he quickly corrected himself and added, “I am sorry I shouldn’t say that because waiters are great peo ple. I shouldn’t say that, but when Salman enters or Shah Rukh enters it feels like a star has come…they are bigger stars than me.”
