Condemning Mansoor's repugnant comments, South Indian Nadikar Sangam released a statement
Actor Mansoor Ali Khan has been receiving criticism since his derogatory comments on actor Trisha. Condemning Mansoor's repugnant comments, South Indian Nadikar Sangam released a statement.
The statement points out that when female actors still face difficulties in the film industry, such comments are definitely not appreciated. The association also urged the actor to apologise without any justifications. Also, the statement cautioned that if he failed to do so, actions may be taken as he might be expelled from the association. The association also mentioned that as an actor and director himself, it is highly irresponsible of Mansoor Ali Khan to deliver such comments.

In a video circulated on social media, Mansoor Ali Khan is seen saying about acting as an antagonist in films, "They do not allow us to rape. I had wanted to tell at the time of Leo but did not. When I came to know that I would be acting with Trisha, I thought there would be some bedroom scenes, and I could throw her on the bed. How many films I have shot with those scenes." The actor also said that he did not even have the chance to interact with her.
In response to the derogatory comments made by the actor, Trisha took to social media to strongly condemn his statements. “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 space with someone as pathetic as him, and I will make sure it never happens for the rest of my film career as well. People like him bring a bad name to mankind,” Trisha wrote on X (formerly Twitter).
Actor Mansoor Ali Khan's misogynistic and distasteful comments on actor Trisha have taken the internet by storm. Following Trisha calling out Mansoor Ali Khan on her social media handles, a handful of film fraternity members expressed solidarity with the actor, bashing Mansoor's crass comments.
