New Delhi:

Actor-turned BJP leader Smriti Irani has heaped praises on Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming film Thappad that deals with the serious issues of domestic violence, pertinent problem in many Indian households. Smriti in her post clarified that she may not support the filmmaker’s political ideologies but supports the subject of the film and will watch it with her family. She stressed that it is not okay to hit women.

“How many have heard “aurat ko hi adjust karna padta hai? How many think “ki maar pitai sirf gareeb auraton ke hi pati karte hai”? How many believe “ki educated aadmi kabhi haath nahi uthata”? How many tell their girls their daughter-in-laws “koi baat nahi beta aisa to humare saath bhi hua lekin dekho aaj kitne khush hai”? I might not support the political ideology of the director or may disagree with some actors on some issues but this is a story that I will definitely watch and hope people watch it with their families. It’s not ok to hit a woman ... not even a slap ... not even JUST one slap Courtesy: @tseries.official,” the union minister wrote.


Director Anubhav Sinha has in several account criticised the BJP government and CAA. Taapsee too participated in a rally in Mumbai protesting the controversial citizenship act.

Taapsee, who plays an woman who won’t tolerate domestic violence and wants a divorce on that account, told IANS, “The character Amrita was suffocating for me in the end and I took it as a challenge. After 15 days of shooting, I started feeling claustrophobic. It was tough for me.”

The movie has been compared to Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh and its show of violence as an act of love. Taapsee Pannu stated that cinema is a reflection of society and the filmmakers thinking is seen in his characters and storyline.
