Thappad trailer has been garnering a lot of appreciation from the audience and from the critics as well. Having a strong subject Thappad starring Taapsee Pannu looks very promising.

Thappad may be weeks away from release, but director Anubhav Sinha wears a look of contentment that probably comes from the knowledge that he has made a good film.

Talking about the film director Anubhav Sinha shares, “I have made this film for men, not women. We are trying to figure out the audience while some media persons will be invited, the rest will be local artistes from the world of literature and music. I chose Lucknow as one of the cities because we shot the film there and I love the city,” explains the director.                                                
“This film is about the relationship that men and women share, in and outside their marriages. It tackles a plethora of issues that have unfortunately been normalised. A whole lot of us indulge in gaslighting without realising it. In order to correct [our behaviour, we need to first know that it is incorrect.”

So confident is he of his storytelling that comes next week, the filmmaker will host screenings of the Taapsee Pannu starrer across five cities including Bhopal, Lucknow, Delhi, Jaipur, and Mumbai leading up to its release on February 28.

After achieving critical and box office success with Article15, Anubhav Sinha is back with another film, Thappad produced by Anubhav Sinha and Bhushan Kumar starring Taapsee Pannu will release on 28 February 2020.
