Taapsee Pannu responds to Ahmed Khan calling Thappad ‘strange’
Thappad has come under the radar of the audience and the critics for both, the right and the wrong reasons. While the film has received raging reviews for being progressive, relevant and well made, several people have slammed it by calling it strange and trivial. The latest to join the notion is Baaghi 3 director Ahmed Khan who said, “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. 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.”
Responding to these remarks on the film, lead actor Taapsee said, “He makes films based on what he finds correct and it is the same for us. At the end of the day, it is the audience who give out the final verdict. 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.”
