Salman Khan, who has landed himself in a yet another controversy, has been asked to apologise for his comment where he compared his worn out condition during Sultan's shoot with that of a 'raped woman.'

After a massive outcry on Twitter, the issue finally reached the National Commission For Women (NCW), who has written to Khan asking him why he made such a statement in the first place.

"This is very sad. Just because he is Salman Khan doesn't mean he will make such a statement," Lalitha Kumaramangalam, NCW Chief, told ANI.

She also added that the Bollywood actor has been given seven days to apologise for his remark.

The secretary of the All India Progressive Women's Association, Kavita Krishnan, told ANI that Khan's comments trivialise the serious issue of rape.

While many Khan supporters contested the fact that he ever made such a remark, an audio recording of the interview was released today morning that confirmed he indeed did, and that his statement wasn't misconstrued.

Here's an audio clip from the group interview in which the offending comment was made. Have a listen.

Minutes ago, the actor's father, Salim Khan, apologised for his son's faux pas.
