Bollywood actor Salman Khan has responded to the notice sent by the National Commission for Women - who had given him seven days to apologise for his "raped woman" remark.
However, the actor has reportedly not apologised for the insensitive remark - which he made at a recent interview in Mumbai. "Have received Salman Khan's reply through his lawyer, he has not apologised, we are studying the reply," Lalitha Kumaramangalam, NCW chief told ANI.
The National Commission for Women (NCW) has also summoned Khan on 7 July after he failed to apologise for the comment.
The NCW had taken suo motu cognisance of the "insensitive" remark by Salman and had sent him a letter asking for an explanation in seven days failing which he will be summoned.
The Maharashtra State Commission for Women summoned Khan, asking him to appear before the commission on 29 June.
In a recent interview for the promotions of Sultan, Salman Khan revealed that he felt like a raped women after the film's tiring shoot.
"Either I am picking (him) up and throwing (him) or he is picking me up and throwing (me). It is the most difficult thing and when I used to walk out of that ring, I used to actually feel like a raped woman. I should not have used that," he said.
