Salim Khan had hoped that apologising on behalf of son Salman Khan for his “raped woman” comment would put an end to the problems that would have arisen.
The veteran writer tweeted yesterday, “Normally people apologise to get rid of the problem but I meant it hoping that the problem would be over.”
He further wrote: “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 adds,“But the commercial compulsion of the media wanted to carry it to the saturation point. I regret not knowing this,” he tweeted.
