Thappad starring Taapsee Pannu had become the most talked movie of the 2020. Everyone has a different opinion about the movie. Helmed by Anubhav Sinha, the movie deals with the sensitive issue of domestic violence.
Though the movie got positive reviews, Taapsee is receiving a lot of flak of lately. Recently, she got trolled by activist Deepika Bhardwaj.
It all started when Taapsee came in favour of Neha Dhupia’s statement and tweeted:
“For all the ppl writing abusive and harassing messages to you and your family should know, they aren’t on the right side of the moral compass they r acting to be the torch bearers of. Adultery is wrong morally n so is violence. One can’t be the response to the other.”
The activist sharing an image of Taapsee’s movie, Manmarziyaan, in which she is seen slapping Vicky, wrote:
“This is u just in case u forgot. Characters u play in reel is how normal humans also behave in real. When u are hurt by ur partner, u react. Slap is wrong but to call a partners cheating a “choice” is bonkers. U & she both need 2 check ur double standards on gender based violence”
To which Taapsee responded:
“Go watch the film again u will understand the difference in context. N while u r at it, re read my tweet n considering your prolific bio I hope u will understand English. If not u can contact a more sensible person to translate. Regards”
This didn’t end here. Deepika once again trolled Taapsee and wrote:
“When a man slaps a woman, focus on slap & not the reason. When a woman slaps a man hard multiple times, focus on the reason & not the slap. Gyaan from Shri Shri Feminist 1001 @taapsee”
However, Taapsee gave a befitting reply and wrote:
“Kindly focus on the reason both the times. N if u can’t see the difference contact sri sri ‘any regular sane human being’ for help. N next time, try other ways to sound reasonable, this one isn’t working anymore :)”
