The controversy over senior actor Mansoor Ali Khan’s statements regarding her ‘Leo’ co-star Trisha have grabbed the headlines. The issue snowballed as Trisha herself called those comments ‘pathetic’ and the film’s director Lokesh Kanagaraj along with celebrities like Chinmayi Sripada condemned the actor’s shocking comments.
However, Mansoor says that his words were misinterpreted. In his latest statement on social media, he stated, “Ah.. My kids informed me that they had heard on the news that I had mistreated Trisha in the press meet. To be honest, I complimented her at that press conference. In the Leo movie, Trisha is treated similarly to how Hanuman moved the mountain Chiranjeevi. I made the comment in jest. Some have purposefully sliced it and presented it to Trisha in an alternative format. I am not the kind of person who is afraid of all this fuss. Today, politicians in prominent positions are among the heroines who have collaborated with me. Several of the heroines settled down and married wealthy businessmen.”
He added, “My daughter Dil Rupa is a huge fan of yours. I also have two more daughters. They want to get married. I have to support that. Those who have acted with me know very well how I respect women. Some people have angered Trisha by misrepresenting this.
There is much work to be done in the world. So focus on your work. Thank you!” With Mansoor making his stance clear, we need to see how Trisha and others respond to it.
