Taapsee Pannu shuts haters for trending #BoycottThappad

Just like Ayushmann Khurrana, even Taapsee Pannu is choosing the project based on a social and common issue. The latest release Thappad that hit the theatres today is receiving applauds both from critics and audience despite netizens encouraging for boycotting her film. The film which is based on domestic violence was boycotted not because of the story but due to Taapsee’s way of promoting the film.

Yes, following Deepika Padukone’s footstep even Taapsee participated in the anti-CAA protest in Mumbai. Not just the actress, in fact, her co-stars Pavail Gulati, Dia Mirza and her director Anubhav Sinha was also seen taking part in the protest. This irked the netizens and they started trending #BoycottThappad as these events are not for promoting their film.

Reacting on the same Taapsee during an interview with ETimes said that personal opinions of actors should not affect their profession to this extent. “It takes about 1000-2000 tweets to trend a certain hashtag. Does that really affect a film? I don’t think so. I might have different social and political views from a lot of people but that does not mean people will not go and watch the film.”

She further added that an actor is never bigger than a film and to make a film it involves hundreds of people. So it is stupid to decide whether or not one will watch a movie based on an actor’s socio-political views.
