HYDERABAD: The controversy surrounding Tamil actor Mansoor Ali Khan's recent sexist remarks aimed at star heroine Trisha Krishnan has taken a new turn, with escalating public outcry.
Trisha, responding to the comments, has strongly criticized them and declared her decision never to work with Mansoor again. Now, Megastar Chiranjeevi has also weighed in on the controversy.
Taking to Twitter, Chiranjeevi expressed his dismay, stating, "My attention was drawn to some reprehensible comments made by actor Mansoor Ali Khan about Trisha. The comments are distasteful and disgusting not just for an artiste but for any woman or girl. These comments must be condemned in the strongest words. They reek of perversion. I stand with @trishtrashers and every woman who has to be subject to such horrid comments."
Despite the public backlash and condemnation from prominent figures like Chiranjeevi, Mansoor's issued statement lacked an apology, further fueling the controversy. The situation has now elevated with the National Commission for Women (NCW) intervening.
In a significant move, the NCW has taken suo moto cognizance of the issue and directed the Tamil Nadu Director General of Police (DGP) to invoke IPC Section 509 B and other relevant laws against Mansoor Ali Khan for his offensive comments.
