Baaghi 3's Director Ahmed Khan Found 'Thappad' Strange, Taapsee Pannu Gives A Befitting Reply
Baaghi 3 hit theatres on the 6th of March, Friday and went onto record the highest opening at the box-office in 2020.?
During ongoing promotions of Baaghi 3, the film's director, Ahmed Khan said that he found Taapsee Pannu's highly acclaimed film, Thappad, strange and questioned the concept of the film.?
Ahmed Khan remarked that no wife would leave her husband for a single slap.?
“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,” he said.??
The filmmaker went onto further say that a single slap can't determine the status of any relationship by saying, "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?"
And as per Mumbai Mirror, Taapsee Pannu responded to director Ahmed Khan's comments by stating that all relationships are not as straightforward as the ones he is talking about.?
The actress 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 audiences who give out the final verdict.”
Taapsee Pann further added, “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.”
The audience and critics have showered the film Thappad with a plethora of well-deserving praises and it won't be wrong to say how this film has completely established the brand 'Taapsee Pannu' and we can't wait to see the actress on the big screen again.?
