Salman Khan, one of Bollywood’s most successful movie stars, prompted outrage in India after saying on Saturday that workout sessions for his latest film made him feel like a “raped woman”.
Sapna is a 21-year-old woman from a lower-middle class family in the Nand Nagri area of eastern Delhi. Her face is scarred by acid. Last August, her 32-year-old relative hired men to throw it in her face as she returned from her part-time job as a helper at an adhesives factory. The relative was angry because she rejected his marriage proposal.
