Actor Mansoor Ali Khan clarified his controversial remarks about actress Trisha, saying he made the comments in jest and they were taken out of context through selective editing.
His remarks drew criticism from various quarters, including the National Commission for Women (NCW), which took notice of the matter.
Khan had said he would have liked a bedroom scene with Trisha if given the chance.
In a statement, Khan apologized to Trisha and her fans for any hurt or offense his words may have caused, emphasizing that he has always respected his female co-stars and would never intentionally say anything disrespectful to them.
Khan said he’s a big fan of Trisha and admires her talent and professionalism.
He hopes Trisha and her fans can forgive him for his thoughtless remarks.
Trisha expressed her disappointment over his comments on social media.
She said Khan’s comments deeply hurt her and hopes he learns from his mistake.
The NCW has notified Khan, asking him to explain his position. The commission is concerned by Khan’s comments, which they say reflect a derogatory mindset towards women.
Khan’s comments started a debate about how women are treated in the Indian film industry.
Many actresses have supported Trisha and criticized Khan’s comments.
Khan apologized, but it’s unclear if it will fix the damage. His comments have hurt his reputation, and he will be more careful in the future.
