Actor Mansoor Ali Khan is currently grabbing the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The 'Leo' actor made some sexist comments on actress Trisha Krishnan. Her fans and industry colleagues called him out for the objectionable comments. Actor Nithiin has also condemned Mansoor's 'vile and vulgar statement' against Trisha. He said that chauvinism has no place in society.
He shared on X, “I strongly condemn Mr. Mansoor Ali Khan's vile and vulgar statement against @trishtrashers. Chauvinism has no place in our society. I urge everyone to stand up against such remarks against women in our industry.”

For the unversed, Nithiin and Trisha had shared the screen space together in the 2005 film 'Allari Bullodu'.
The National Commission for Women has released a statement, that read: ''The National Commission for Women is deeply concerned about the derogatory remarks made by actor Mansoor Ali Khan towards actress Trisha Krishna. We're taking suo motu in this matter directing the DGP to invoke IPC Section 509 B and other relevant laws. Such remarks normalize violence against women and must be condemned.”
Earlier, Trisha also reacted to Mansoor’s statement. “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,'' wrote the 'Ponniyin Selvan' actress.
Meanwhile, Mansoor released a note in Tamil on his Instagram handle. He wrote, “As a human being I have done so much for the people, and will be continuing to do so. My personality needn’t be questioned. This has been nothing but a defamation against me. My Tamil people know how much I’ve stood for mankind. Everybody knows me who I am, what I am!”
