A few days ago, Mansoor Ali Khan made insensitive remarks by saying that he lost out on the opportunity to share a ‘bedroom scene’ with her in ‘Leo’. Trisha had strongly condemned Mansoor Ali Khan’s remarks on social media, declaring she would never share screen space with him.

The controversy led to police booking Mansoor Ali Khan on charges of sexual harassment as well as intent to outrage a woman’s modesty.The actor had expressed his expectation of bedroom scenes with Trisha in their film Leo, only to find none, leading to a public dispute. Mansoor Ali Khan had also controversially asserted the absence of rape scenes for villains in contemporary Tamil films.

On November 24, Mansoor Ali Khan shared a statement in Tamil in which he apologised to her and asked for her forgiveness. An excerpt from his statement reads, “My co-star Trisha, please forgive me. I hope God gives me the opportunity to bless you when you enter marital bliss.” The National Women’s Commission took swift action, filing a police complaint against Mansoor Ali Khan. Lokesh Kanagaraj, the director of the film Leo, singer Chinmayi, actor-politician Khushbu, actress Malavika Mohanan, Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi, and the South Indian Film Artistes’ Association had also condemned Mansoor Ali Khan’s comments recently.

Mansoor Ali Khan in his long statement wrote that he has been through war over the past one week. He thanked the leaders, actors and media people who fought for him. He also thanked those who condemned him. In response to the mounting criticism, Mansoor Ali Khan previously claimed that his remarks were distorted and manipulated, particularly as they surfaced ahead of his film release. He merely reflects the changing portrayal of women in contemporary Tamil films and understands the need for responsible dialogue.

However, acknowledging the gravity of the situation, Mansoor Ali Khan has now issued a public apology to Trisha. Calling “the Kalinga war is over” and “I’ve won”, the actor hopes he would get the opportunity to bless Trisha’s “thirumangalyam” (mangalsutra) for her wedding.
