Mansoor Ali Khan’s distasteful comments about Trisha Krishnan sparked outrage, and the situation is escalating. Commoners, celebrities, and the National Commission for Women (NCW) have all demanded an apology from him, and some have even called for his arrest. Nithiin, a Tollywood actor, was the first to condemn Mansoor Ali Khan’s behaviour, and now Chiranjeevi, another Tollywood figure, has spoken out against the disrespectful remarks.
My attention was drawn to some reprehensible comments made by actor Mansoor Ali Khan about Trisha.
The comments are distasteful and disgusting not just for an Artiste but for any woman or girl. These comments must be condemned in the strongest words. They reek of perversion.…

Mansoor Ali Khan, the Leo film actor, has called a press conference to address the backlash. “Nadigar Sangam made a mistake (by imposing a temporary ban until he apologizes). When something like this happened, they didn’t even ask for an explanation. They should have called or emailed me to request an explanation. An investigation should be launched. But that did not happen.”
Mansoor Ali Khan is not ‘Sorry’:
Talking about his controversial remark Mansoor said, “I will give Nadigar Sangam four hours to withdraw their statement against me. They suggested that I apologize. Do I come across as someone who will apologize? The media are free to say whatever they want about me. People know who I am. I have the support of the Tamil people. I will make no apologies.”
Mansoor said it in his native language, according to the video. “When I found out I was going to be in a film with Trisha, I assumed there would be a bedroom scene. I imagined myself carrying her to the bedroom, as I had done in previous films with other actresses. I’ve done a lot of rape scenes in different movies, so it’s nothing new to me. But these guys didn’t even show Trisha to me during the Kashmir shoot.”

The National Commission for Women (NCW) took suo motu cognizance and directed the director general of police in Tamil Nadu to invoke IPC Section 509 B (sexual harassment through electronic means) and other relevant laws against actor Mansoor Ali Khan for allegedly making derogatory remarks about his ‘Leo‘ co-star Trisha Krishnan in a video.
A recent video has come to my notice where Mr.Mansoor Ali Khan has spoken about me in a vile and disgusting manner.I strongly condemn this and find it sexist,disrespectful,misogynistic,repulsive and in bad taste.He can keep wishing but I am grateful never to have shared screen…
