Mansoor Ali Khan, an actor-producer, is at the centre of a raging controversy after making inappropriate comments about his Leo co-star Trisha during a recent press interview. Despite increasing pressure and criticism, Mansoor refuses to apologise to Trisha.
“What is this nonsense?” Shouldn’t I only ask for an apology if I’ve made a mistake? I don’t believe in the creed of men who seek apologies. I did not make any mistakes. “These are false allegations,” Mansoor recently told Indiaglitz.
Mansoor defended his statement by levelling counter-allegations against unidentified individuals. He claimed that a political conspiracy was afoot to smear his reputation. He also claimed that he has a good reputation in the film industry for how he treats his female coworkers. He claimed that in his long career, he had never made any of his female coworkers feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
“I spoke as an artist at the time.” My remarks were not directed at Trisha in any way. “It was never my intention,” he clarified.
Mansoor went on to claim that the viral video misrepresented his comments. He claimed that if people watch the unedited version of the video, they will understand the truth. “If required I will appear before Nadigar Sangam and Trisha and show them the full video,” he told reporters.
