Anushka reportedly had revealed that the felt that she didn't even know Salman Khan and the words like 'rape' could not be used like this. It was rather insensitive.
The controversy churned in when Salman Khan told the press that, when he used to walk out of the ring after the shoot, she used to feel like a raped woman. He couldn't walk straight.
This comment invited massive backlash from the netizens. Salman was called out at social media sites for being so casual about using a word, like rape, in everyday conversation. Kangana Ranaut and many other people had also criticised Salman for his remark. Anushka Sharma and Salman Khan had worked in a film titled Sultan.
