The ongoing feud between Trisha Krishnan and Mansoor Ali Khan took a surprising turn after Mansoor issued a cryptic apology to his Leo co-star for his earlier misogynistic comments. Trisha, seemingly taking the high road, responded on X (formerly Twitter) with a profound statement: “To err is human, to forgive is divine.”
The apology from Mansoor came amid escalating tensions and legal action taken by the Chennai police. Trisha’s decision to respond with a quote on forgiveness suggests a willingness to move past the controversy and focus on a more positive path.
” எனது சக திரைநாயகி திரிஷாவே
இல்லறமாம் நல்லறத்தில் நின் மாங்கல்யம் தேங்காய் தட்டில் வலம்வரும்போது நான் ஆசிர்வதிக்கும் பாக்யத்தை இறைவன் தந்தருள்வானாக!! ஆமீன். ”

While Trisha’s response indicates a desire to put the ordeal behind her, reactions from fans in the comments section suggest that forgiveness may not come easily. Some expressed skepticism, with one fan suggesting that Mansoor’s apology may be driven by fear of legal consequences rather than genuine remorse.
Mansoor’s initial refusal to apologize and his controversial comments during a press meet had intensified the controversy. However, the situation evolved after the National Commission for Women took suo moto cognizance, and the Chennai police counselled Mansoor. His subsequent statement expressed a plea for forgiveness, invoking blessings for Trisha’s well-being.
The entire episode unfolded during the promotion of their film Leo when Mansoor made objectionable comments to the press about filming exploitative scenes with Trisha. The incident garnered widespread condemnation from the Leo team and actors within the South Indian film industry.
As Trisha chooses to respond with grace and forgiveness, the saga serves as a reminder of the complexities surrounding public apologies and the importance of dialogue in navigating contentious situations within the entertainment industry.
