Taapsee Pannu starrer ‘Thappad’ trailer released a few days back and the moment it was dropped online, netizens called it a ‘tight slap’ on Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer ‘Kabir Singh’. The movie was bashed by critics for its toxic and misogynistic view of romance.

In an interview when we asked Taapsee if ‘Thappad’ should have been Preety’s (Kiara Advani’s character in ‘Kabir Singh’) answer to Kabir, Taapsee said, “I wish it was. It would have been a different film altogether.”

Taapsee also said that it doesn’t matter who hits who. “That’s because we are showing in our film that a woman is hit by her husband, doesn’t mean it is right for a woman to hit her husband too. Using physical power irrespective of any gender-male or female is wrong.”

Recently during a media interaction, Taapsee clarified that ‘Thapaad’ hasn’t been made as an answer to ‘Kabir Singh’. As reported by IANS, she said, “It’s not that we have made this film keeping ‘Kabir Singh’ in mind. I feel very sad when I hear people saying that ‘we have made a film to give an answer to another film’. This film was written before the release of ‘Kabir Singh’. I feel the thappad(slap) is only a trigger, but there are so many other things that will unfold about relationships in this film.”

Directed by Anubhav Sinha, ‘Thappad’ is releasing on February 28.
