"Thappad' is about those said-unsaid things women are supposed to do. For years we have been living like that. It raises questions like ‘why women need to be a certain way?' I'm playing this average Indian woman, who is also taught to be a certain way. The biggest challenge for me and Anubhav sir was how to rip that fiery image off me because audiences are used to seeing me doing something radical,’’ the actor had earlier said during a film festival.
