Mansoor Ali Khan Files Defamation Suit Before Madras High Court Against Trisha Chiranjeevi Kushboo

Tamil film actor Mansoor Ali Khan has moved the Madras High Court filing a defamation suit against actors Trisha, Chiranjeevi, and Kushboo Sundar claiming they made defamatory comments against him on social media platforms.


I submit that the present suit is for damages as against the Defendants for the defamatory remarks that were made against me in the public social media platform X (formerly Twitter), all of which the consequences have all occurred in Chennai within the jurisdiction of this Honble Court, Khans plea states. 


At a press conference to promote the Vijay- starrer Leo, Khan allegedly made misogynistic remarks along the lines of how, despite both Trisha and he were in the movie, he did not get to share screen space with her and had no "bedroom scenes" with her.


Khan's statement sparked outrage, with celebrities including Chiranjeevi, Khushbu Sundar, Trisha, and the creators of Leo condemning it on X (previously Twitter).
Khan alleges that the Defendant actors rushed to social media to make comments against him before verifying or ascertaining the truth and proper sequence of events. Khan argued that he hadnt said any wrong statement against his latest movie co-star, Trisha or any other woman. 


I submit that I have not uttered any wrong statement against any persons personally, but merely had commented on the negative shades that I had played, which has off-late become a vanishing trend and no longer in vogue and no personal comments had ever been made about the Defendant or any other woman in particular. 


The incident prompted the National Commission for Women to take suo moto cognizance of Khan's remarks, post which the Chennai police issued a first information report (FIR). He then publicly apologized to Trisha. Reports state that even after this, he made certain comments clarifying his previous statement.
