After Trisha called out actor Mansoor Ali Khan for his derogatory remarks about her, several celebrities rallied in support of the Ponniyin Selvan actor. The latest to support Trisha is Telugu star Chiranjeevi, who said that Mansoor’s words are ‘reprehensible’.
Earlier, Trisha had vowed to never work with Mansoor after his lewd comments about her at a press conference. Mansoor spoke in Tamil during the interaction, and said, “When I heard that I was acting with Trisha, I thought there would be a bedroom scene in the film. I thought I would carry her to the bedroom just like I did with other actresses in my earlier movies. I have done so many rape scenes and it’s not new to me. But these guys didn’t even show Trisha to me on the sets during the shoot in Kashmir.”
Chiranjeevi wrote in a post on X, “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.”

Trisha replied to the Bholaa Shankar actor by writing, “Thank you Chiru sir”. Chiranjeevi’s tweet comes after Trisha’s Leo director Lokesh Kanagaraj also called out Mansoor. He wrote, “Disheartened and enraged to hear the misogynistic comments made by Mr.Mansoor Ali Khan, given that we all worked in the same team. Respect for women, fellow artists and professionals should be a non-negotiable in any industry and I absolutely condemn this behaviour.”
Trisha had slammed Mansoor for his comments by writing on social media, “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.”

After Trisha’s tweet, stern action was demanded by National Commission for Women. The NCW tweeted, “The National Commission for Women is deeply concerned about the derogatory remarks made by actor Mansoor Ali Khan towards actress Trisha Krishnan. 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,” the post read. Section 509B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertains to sexual harassment by electronic mode.
