The interview quotes the 50-year-old star as saying, "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."
Salman Khan's quote has evoked outrage on social media with Twitterati terming his comments 'insensitive' and demanding an apology.
Here are some reactions on Twitter:
Salman Khan compared his shooting schedule to what a "raped woman" feels like. Is that worse than Lata-Sachin jokes, Bollywood?— Dhruv Deshpande (@DhruvDeshpunde) June 20, 2016
I know Salman Khan has fans. But if his female fans are ok with his "I felt like a raped woman" then I've just lost faith in the world.— Nehr-who? (@threeinchfooll) June 20, 2016
kindly remove humanitarian from your bio @BeingSalmanKhan . There cannot be anything more inhuman than using raped woman analogy. SHAME— Moni (@TrulyMonica) June 20, 2016
People who use the term rape casually. Do you realize it is not just about force but about destructing someone's esteem?— Moni (@TrulyMonica) June 20, 2016

Some users, however, raised the point of Salman Khan being 'misquoted'.
Seconds after Salman gave that statement he said: don't take that in literal sense, what i mean is I could not walk— Himesh (@himeshmankad) June 20, 2016
