Thappad features Taapsee in the role of a housewife who raises her voice against domestic violence because there’s no place for violence in a marriage even if it’s just ‘one slap.’ The buzz around the film was already high ever since the trailer hit the screens. With the film getting good word-of-mouth on social media, Thappad has now emerged as an important story that was needed to be made for a society where women are subjected to both emotional and physical violence every day in most relationships.
Thappad reunited Taapsee with Sinha for the second time after Mulk. This is the director’s third consecutive outing with socially relevant cinema. Earlier last year, Sinha made Article 15 with Ayushmann Khurrana that talked about discrimination on the basis of gender, caste, language and race.
