Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Thappad’ is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The trailer of the film not just sent a wave across the nation but also marked the beginning of a detailed conversation that slapping a woman is not ‘itni si baat’.
Thappad, apart from Taapsee, stars Pavail Gulati, Dia Mirza, Ratna Pathak Shah, Tanvi Azmi, Geetika Vidya, Maya Sarao, Naila Grewal, Kumud Mishra and Gracy Goswami in the lead roles. It’s a family drama, which is about a woman, who files for divorce when her husband slaps her.
Thappad is produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series along with Anubhav and Benaras Mediaworks, and the movie is scheduled to be released on February 28, 2020.
The trailer, while shaking the foundations of male chauvinist films, brought to fore the topic of domestic violence and unequal treatment towards women in the country.
Now, as Thappad is a few weeks away from its theatrical release, the Anubhav Sinha directorial has found yet another supporter in the Union Minister of India Smriti Irani. The actress-turned politician gave a big shout-out to ‘Thappad’ on her social media platforms.
Smriti, in an Instagram post, shared the trailer of Thappad and penned a long note, extending support to the thought-provoking multi-tale film. She mentioned that she will definitely watch it and urged others to do so.
