Mumbai: Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan has given a very baffling explanation to his brother Salman's crass comment last weekend when he compared himself to a 'raped woman' while recounting the gruelling schedule of his upcoming film 'Sultan'.
"It was just the kind of (statement) where we compare things... I can say 'I worked like a donkey'... and animal activists might question the comparison to a donkey. Sometimes, you say something out of context, your intention is not wrong but if you become over sensitive about it, then you can create an issue over anything," Arbaaz added.
Arbaaz hoped his brother Salman Khan would clarify the controversial remark.
"Salman is a 50-year-old man who says what he wants to to the media and lives his life. There are some things which we say while talking but we should look at the intention. Why was it said? I definitely have no doubt that whatever Salman said, the intention was not wrong," Arabaaz replied, when quizzed by reporters about the controversy at the trailer launch of 'Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai'.
"I am sure Salman must have realised the comparison was not appropriate and for that, if he feels he needs to apologise, he will apologise... If he has said it by mistake, may be he should probably give a justification," Arbaaz added.
He further said, "I don't think I am entitled to make a comment and say 'he has to apologise'. I would hope that he gives a clarification because a controversy has been created. So jawaab dena banta hai, because people look up to him. He has a lot of fans, he is a youth icon."
