Aamir Khan has broken his silence on the row over Salman Khan's "raped woman" comment.
The actor, who will be seen essaying the role of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in his upcoming sport drama Dangal, is currently in Mumbai for the final shooting schedule of the film. During the launch of the poster for Dangal, Aamir was asked to comment on Salman's rape analogy.
Aamir, who is friends with the Sultan star, said he did not know what Salman had actually said in the interview and that he only knew about the controversy from media reports. Aamir said:
"I wasn't present at the time he made this comment. And whatever I know is through the media. I think the comment was rather unfortunate and insensitive."
On being asked about what advice he would give to his Andaaz Apna Apna co-star on the issue, Aamir said: "Who am I to advice him?"
Salman Khan courted controversy last month when he compared his physical condition after the gruelling training sessions for his film Sultan to that of a raped woman. "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. I should not have used that," Salman said.
