Trailer of Taapsee’s Next Film 'Thappad' Is Out
Looks like Taapsee Pannu is on a roll these days. A few days, she released the first look of her upcoming film Shabaash Mithu, where she will portray the role of India’s women cricket team captain Mithali Raj. Now, she shared the first look poster of her upcoming movie Thappad.
The first look poster shows Taapsee with dishevelled hair and distorted face, showing that she has been hit with force across the face, thus the name of the movie, Thappad.
The film is being helmed by Anubhav Sinha, who has previously directed critically acclaimed films like Article 15 and Mulk.
Thappad shows the story of a woman (Taapsee) who decides to divorce her husband (played by Pavail Gulati) after he publically slaps her hard at a party due to his anger. The trailer starts with Taapsee sitting with a lawyer demanding a divorce from her husband, while the lawyer askes her if she really wants a separation over just one slap. The trailer then moves to flashback and shows the couple in their daily, happy life where Taapsee plays a perfect wife and daughter in law. It all changes when her husband loses his temper at a party and slaps her in front of everyone. This incident makes her realise that domestic violence, even if it was a one-time incident, should not be tolerated and thus begins her fight to separate from her husband while the rest of the world tells her that it is not that big of a deal.
Taapsee shared the trailer on her social media accounts with the caption, “Kya yeh bas itni si baat hai? Kya pyaar mein ye bhi jayaz hai? (Is it just a tiny issue? Even this is justified in love?”
The film also stars Ratna Pathak Shah, Manav Kaul, Dia Mirza, Tanvi Azmi and Ram Kapoor and will hit the theatres on February 28, 2020.
