While Salman had later said, 'I don't think I should have' and explained that he found it hard to walk, the damage was done. (Read:Salman Khan felt like a raped woman on the sets of Sultan)

Aamir said: 'I feel.... I was not present there... (But) going by the media reports, what he has said is rather unfortunate or rather insensitive.'Asked if he spoke to his 'Andaaz Apna Apna' co-actor or gave him any advice, Aamir said: 'No I didn't speak to him... And who am I to give him advice.'Aamir also said that Salman has always been a bigger star than him. Watch how people reacted to Salman Khan's 'insensitive comment.'


'I feel Shah Rukh, Salman, Amitabh Bachchan are bigger stars. There are a host of stars who I consider big and this includes Hrithik (Roshan), Ranbir (Kapoor) and Ranveer (Singh). There are so many stars who are hugely popular. I don't get into comparison,' he said. Then, he likened himself to a waiter while comparing himself with Salman. 'When I see Salman walking into a room, it feels like a star has arrived. When I enter it looks as if some waiter has entered,' he said.

However, he quickly corrected himself and added: 'I am sorry I shouldn't say that because waiters are great people. I shouldn't say that, but when Salman enters or Shah Rukh enters it feels like a star has come...they are bigger stars than me,' he said. Salman's 'raped woman' comment didn't go down too well with a lot of people. The National Commission for Women (NCW) and the Shiv Sena even demanded a public apology from Salman. He sent a letter to NCW via his lawyer but the organisation said it was not an apology. Now Salman has been summoned by the NCW on July 8. (Read: Aamir Khan's secret to good health)
