Khan found himself in controversy when he compared his strenuous shooting experience for Sultan to the condition of a ‘raped woman’. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star plays a akhaada-trained wrestler as well as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter in the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial co-starring Anushka Sharma.
The content of the letter Khan has sent to the MSCW is not yet known. The MSCW is reportedly busy in consultation with their legal department regarding the content of the letter.
“We have received the letter. We are studying it now. We have sent it to our legal department and will decide the future course of action,” said MSCW Chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar.
Rahatkar, however, did not give any comment on the letter’s contents. Neither did she mention if any action will be taken by the commission in regard to the controversy.
Earlier, when the MSCW sent the first summoning letter to the actor, Khan replied back to the panel through his lawyer, stating that as NCW was already hearing the case, the matter could not be heard simultaneously at two commissions.
Later, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star defied the NCW when he did not appear to provide clarification regarding his controversial statement. This happened a day after he missed a date the MSCW, after which the MSCW asked him to appear on Thursday (July 14).
Meanwhile, Sultan has already grossed over Rs. 200 crore in the box office and is expected to enter the Rs. 300 crore club very soon.
