Hours after actor Mansoor Ali issued a public apology to Trisha for his inappropriate comments, the actress responded with a post suggesting her final stance on the matter. Quoting poet Alexander Pope, Trisha stated, “To err is human, to forgive is divine,” accompanied by a prayer emoji.

For context, Mansoor Ali Khan had made objectionable remarks about Trisha in an interview, expressing disappointment over the absence of anticipated "bedroom scenes" with her in their recent film "Leo." He also lamented the perceived scarcity of certain types of scenes in Tamil films.

Unsurprisingly, Mansoor Ali Khan's comments triggered widespread social media outrage, leading to a police complaint filed by the National Women's Commission. The 61-year-old actor faced charges of sexual harassment and intent to outrage a woman's modesty. Mansoor Ali Khan issued a somewhat convoluted apology, expressing regret to his co-actress Trisha. In a statement, he said, My co-actress Trisha, Please forgive me! May God bless the fortune for me to bless your Mangalyam (marital necklace, mangalsutra) as it goes around in the coconut tray in the auspicious marital ritual! Amen. Mansoor Ali Khan"

In response to the legal actions, Mansoor Ali Khan issued an apology on Friday, expressing remorse to Trisha. In a convoluted statement, he sought forgiveness and expressed the hope to congratulate her on her marriage in the future.

The apology to Trisha is tucked into the concluding line of the second slide of his post. Notably, Mansoor Ali Khan initially resisted apologizing, even after facing a temporary ban from the Tamil film industry's Nadigar Sangam. He defended his earlier comments, questioning the need for an apology and asserting his respect for all actresses. However, the subsequent legal proceedings appear to have prompted a change of heart, leading to his public apology.

Mansoor Ali Khan catapulted to stardom with his notable role in 'Captain Prabhakaran.' While his prominence is rooted in Tamil cinema, he has also ventured into the realms of Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam films.

Trisha, acclaimed for her stellar performances in movies like '96,' the 'Ponniyin Selvan' series, and 'The Road,' continues to grace the silver screen with her talent. Her upcoming projects include 'Vidda Muryarch' and the Malayalam film 'Ram: Part 1.'
