Trisha-Mansoor Ali Khan Row
Tamil cine star Trisha Krishnan has condemned ‘Leo’ co-actor Mansoor Ali Khan for his ‘vile and disgusting’ remarks about not getting the chance to share screen space with her in the blockbuster movie.
In a recent interview, Khan, who had an important cameo in the Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial ‘Leo’ made derogatory remarks about not having any scene with Trisha during the film’s shoot schedule in Kashmir.
Trisha said the comments made by Khan are “sexist, disrespectful, misogynistic, repulsive and in bad taste” and she will never work with the actor ever again.
“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,” she said in a statement shared on X.
Kanagaraj also came out in support of Trisha. The director said he is “disheartened and enraged to hear the misogynistic comments made by Mr. Mansoor Ali Khan”.
