Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has come out in support of Salman Khan and said his “intentions” were not wrong, after the superstar’s rape analogy created a row.

Salman, in a group interview to promote ‘Sultan’, said he felt like a “raped woman” while shooting the physically grueling shoot for the wrestling drama.

When asked about his take, Nawazuddin, who has worked with Salman in ‘Kick’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ told reporters, “He used it metaphorically.

The discussion is over now, so no use of repeating it and asking questions again.” The statement has not gone down well with many, who have taken to Twitter to express their angst against the actor.

Even actress Kangana Ranaut called the ‘Dabangg’ star’s comment as “extremely insensitive”.

While his father, scriptwriter Salim Khan, apologized on the actor’s behalf, the demand for Salman to issue an apology himself has been growing from political parties, activists and social media users
