Trisha Krishnan Takes a Stand Against Misogyny: Controversy Erupts Over Co-star's Disturbing Comments
In the vibrant world of South Indian cinema, where talent and stardom often converge, a recent controversy has cast a shadow over the success of the film "Leo." Starring Thalapathy Vijay and the prominent actress Trisha Krishnan, the movie had become a major sensation at the box office. However, the film's success took an unexpected turn when Mansoor Ali Khan, portraying a negative character in the film, made controversial remarks about his co-star during a press conference.
Mansoor Ali Khan's Provocative Statements:
At the center of the controversy are Mansoor Ali Khan's deeply objectionable comments about Trisha Krishnan. In a widely circulated video on social media, Khan expressed disappointment over the absence of a rape scene involving Trisha in the film "Lio." Shockingly, he stated, "I had anticipated taking her (Trisha) to the bedroom, similar to what I've done with other actresses in films. I have enacted numerous rape scenes, and this is not a new experience for me. However, due to scheduling conflicts in Kashmir, I didn't get the opportunity to share screen time with Trisha."
Trisha Krishnan's Resolute Response:

The repercussions of Mansoor Ali Khan's comments reverberated beyond the immediate controversy. Various celebrities within the South Indian film industry voiced their disapproval, adding their voices to a growing chorus of condemnation. The incident sparked widespread discussions about the treatment of women in the film industry and the responsibility of actors in fostering a respectful and inclusive environment.
