Film stars should be a lot more responsible about what they say: Freida Pinto

Actress Freida Pinto, who is here for the IIFA celebrations, commented on Salman’s statement  that “he felt like a raped woman” while shooting. Pinto was asked for her take on whether stars need to be more responsible.  Without naming any names, she said: “I think it’s important that you start feeling the burden. You might want to say something that is actually not in the negative light. Responsibilities also come with consequences.”  Pinto’s comment comes at a time when Salman Khan landed in controversy after he said during a media interaction that he felt like a “raped woman” walking out of a ring while shooting for his role as a wrestler in his upcoming film “Sultan.”  He received flak for the comment. While social media remained abuzz with reactions to his remark, the National Commission for Women and the Shiv Sena have demanded an apology from him.  Salman Khan has yet to apologize, but his father and veteran writer Salim Khan has apologized on his behalf.  The “Dabangg” star is also here for the IIFA gala, which celebrates the magic of Hindi cinema at an international destination.
