Actor Mansoor appears before police for inquiry over derogatory remarks against Trisha

Chennai, Nov 23 (PTI) Actor Mansoor Ali Khan, known for his negative roles in Tamil films, appeared before the city police on Thursday in connection with the cases registered against him for making alleged derogatory and unsavoury remarks against southern star Trisha.

Mansoor presented himself before the All Women Police Station at Thousand Lights here for an inquiry in relation to the case.

The National Commission for Women had lodged a police complaint against the actor over a controversial video of his that went viral.

In the video, Mansoor expressed dismay over bedroom scenes not figuring with Trisha in the blockbuster film 'Leo' directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj with actor Vijay in the lead role and Trisha as co-star.

'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 other actresses in my earlier movies,' Mansoor said.

He further said 'I have done so many rape scenes and it's not new to me. But these guys didn't show Trisha to me on the sets during the shoot in Kashmir.' After the video went viral, Trisha condemned his remarks and the NCW asked the Tamil Nadu police to take action against Mansoor. Following this, cases were registered under section 354 (intent to outrage modesty) and section 509 (uttering words, gesturing, or act intended to outrage the modesty of a woman) against him.

Earlier in the day, Mansoor put out a video to say that he did not abscond after the police summoned him to appear today. He would appear before the police in the evening, he had said. PTI JSP ROH
