As the Gujarat HC rejected the plea to stop screening Sultan in the state, in view of his rape remark, on Thursday, the National Commission for women has claimed that Salman Khan, through his spokespersons and lawyers, has refused to apologise for his rape remark.

MSCW chief Vijaya Rahatkar has spoken to TV channels about Salman's response, claiming that while he has refused to apologise, it will be incorrect to comment on his response as of now while they are still analysing it.

According to CNN-News 18 TV reports, Salman Khan has said that the Maharashtra Women Commission has no jurisdiction.

Meanwhile, Salman Khan's co-star from Sultan Anushka Sharma spoke about his comments in an interview with film critic Anupama Chopra.

Upon being asked what her thoughts were on his analogy (he had said in a print interview that after a taxing scene in the film, he felt like a "raped woman"), she said, "a lot has been spoken about it. We obviously understand that it was rather insenstitive, something that I was a bit surprised by. What it made me realise that each and every one of us has a responsibility of what we say not just in public but even among friends. Celebrities more so.

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan have refused to comment on Salman's analogy, Aamir Khan had also called it insensitive, while Rishi Kapoor said, "I'm sure he didn't meant it."
