Kangana Ranaut reacted to Salman Khan’s callous, ‘raped woman’ comment at an event in Mumbai on Wednesday evening. The actress is the first celebrity from Bollywood who has given her opinion on the star’s controversial statement which was made during an interview on Sultan. Here’s what Kangana said:

We all agree right, it’s a horrible thing to say and it’s something which is extremely insensitive. But let’s not encourage that mentality where we want to point fingers at each other and want to feel greater by just running people down by trolling them. As a society we have to take responsibility and stand united and it’s a disgrace for the whole society not just an individual. Just like Salim uncle says we are all sorry about it, it’s not about an individual, we all collectively feel sorry about that thought process.

Manoj Bajpayee also spoke at the event and said that Salman should apologise for his faux pas.

The word he used was wrong but we all know that he is a good human being, he respects women a lot, and we hope from next time he chooses his words carefully. I think he should apologise. 
Manoj Bajpayee, Actor

Salman’s father Salim Khan had earlier apologised on behalf of the star and now it’s Kangana who is doing the same. When will Salman himself speak up?
