On November 19, 2023, the actors’ association (The South Indian Artistes’ Association-SIAA, also known as Nadigar Sangam), strongly condemned actor Khan for his comments against Krishnan and demanded that he make a public apology. The SIAA had said Khan’s comment ‘in the name of comedy,’ was objectionable and disrespectful against Trisha Krishnan. Also, the reference he had made to two other actresses, Khushbu and Roja, was also objectionable and similar in nature, the actors’ body had said. Following a complaint from the National Commission for Women, the Thousand Light All Women Police here had registered an FIR against Khan.
