"I was not present... Going by media reports, I feel what he said is unfortunate and insensitive," Aamir Khan told reporters in Mumbai.

When asked if he would give any advice to Salman on this, Aamir said, "Who am I to give advice?" The 'Dangal' star, 51, was speaking at the poster launch of the film.

Aamir said he is yet to speak to Salman on the issue. Salman had landed himself in soup when he compared himself to a raped woman while talking about the the physically gruelling shoot of 'Sultan'.

The actor has stayed mum on the controversy despite demands for an apology by womens' groups.
