The controversy over Salman Khan’s ‘rape’ remark during the promotions of Sultan has still not died down. Yesterday, Salim Khan, the star's father, accused the media of commercialising the whole issue.

Among the star's colleagues in Hindi cinema, Kangana Ranaut and Anurag Kashyap have criticized Salman Khan for making the comments. And today Aamir Khan said he found his fellow actor's statement "unfortunate and insensitive".

But there have been others who have plainly refused to speak on the issue. During a media interaction today, Sonakshi Sinha made it clear that she falls in the latter category.

“I think too much has already been said about it and there is too much focus and attention put on something that shouldn’t have been put. So, I think I will stay away from it. It should be put aside and real issues should be addressed,” Sinha said. 

The actress was speaking at the trailer launch of her upcoming film Akira at a college in South Mumbai. The film is directed by AR Murugadoss.
