Ahmed Khan‘s latest offering ‘Baaghi 3‘ hit the silver screens yesterday. During the film’s promotional event, Ahmed was asked about Taapsee Pannu‘s latest release ‘Thappad’. The director said that he found the concept of Anubhav Sinha‘s film quite strange. He failed to understand how can a single slap decide the end of a relationship.

Sharing his views on ‘Thappad’, Ahmed told Mumbai Mirror, “I found the concept of Thappad very strange. I don’t understand just because the husband slapped his wife, will she leave him forever? If she has a problem, she too should slap her husband twice in return.”

He further explained his point, “If I ever slap my wife, she can slap me back and end it. If I tell her that I don’t want to be with her anymore, then she can also tell me the same. But, will a slap decide whether a couple can stay together or not? But then, everyone has a different point of view and way of looking at it.”

Reacting to Khan’s comment, Taapsee said that its the audience who gives the final verdict. The actress was quoted saying, “We have always seen relationships where there is love and respect. But, there might be those kinds of relationships too, of which he is talking about. He can continue to make films he is comfortable with. We will do what we are comfortable doing.”

Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Thappad’ takes on patriarchy and highlights how we all are in complicit in making it acceptable.
