Thappad trailer: Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha’s film is a resounding slap in Kabir Singh’s face. Watch

Published

on

The trailer for Anubhav Sinha’s latest film Thappad was released online on Friday. Starring Taapsee Pannu in the lead, Thappad tells the story of a woman who decides to divorce her husband after he slaps her.

The trailer begins with Taapsee in a meeting with her lawyers who cannot fathom why she wants a separation from her husband over ‘just a slap’. They ask her if her in-laws are causing trouble, if he has cheated on her, if she has cheated on him because getting slapped is apparently not a good enough reason to leave one’s spouse. But Taapsee doesn’t budge.

The trailer then takes us to happier times when all was well between the couple. She cares for his mother, prepares his lunch, plays the perfect wife until he loses temper at a party one day and slaps her in front of everyone. The episode makes Taapsee realise how the slap isn’t an isolated incident but reflects how her husband never really thought of her as an equal.

He apologises to her, pleads with her to take him back, says how it was not a big deal. Others, too, support his stand. His mother tells Taapsee that women are supposed to take some things lying down while Taapsee’s mother is worried about the ‘divorcee’ tag that will be given to her daughter. Despite all this, Taapsee stands her ground and takes her divorce case to the court.

Watch the trailer: 

The project reunites Taapsee with her Mulk director Anubhav Sinha.”Working with Anubhav sir is always an enriching experience and he encourages one to push the envelope. When he discussed Thappad, I immediately decided this was a film I had to do. It has a thought-provoking storyline and deals with a subject which must be addressed in our society. To put it in perspective, looking at what we aim to convey with our film, I can say Thappad is this year’s Pink,” Taapsee, 32, said in a statement.

The cast also includes Ratna Pathak Shah, Manav Kaul, Dia Mirza, Tanvi Azmi and Ram Kapoor. Thappad — produced by Anubhav Sinha and Bhushan Kumar– is scheduled to hit the screens on February 28.

Pankaj Tripathi turns writer amidst COVID-19 lockdown

Published

on

Mirzapur actor Pankaj Tripathi has already experimented with his acting skills on different platforms. He has tried everything from TV to films and to OTT platforms. With the country reeling under the Coronavirus pandemic, people are in home quarantine in accordance with the 21-day nationwide lockdown announced by PM Modi. Tripathi is also in home quarantine and has found a new way to deal with his boredom.

During the period, the actor is making most of his time with his family. Along with it, the quarantine time has brought out the writer in him.

“Actors are often closely associated with writing, even in the projects that they are just acting in. As artistes, we communicate to the audience what the writer is trying to tell through his body language, his ability to emote on screen,” said Pankaj to a media agency.

“Writing is a creative extension of me and I am not doing it with the motive of writing a screenplay really. I started with penning down my thoughts for the sake of keeping my skills sharpened. Writing and acting are interconnected for me. I am writing to fulfil my own creative quest. Let me see how the finished product turns out and if it is my satisfaction, I will figure what I want to do with it,” he added.

On the acting front, he has films including Ludo and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl in his kitty.

According to Twinkle, the couple made their way to the hospital. Putting a full stop to your imagination, let us tell you that it was not related to Coronavirus.

The actress, on Sunday took to her official Instagram handle to share a video from the couple’s way back from the hospital and revealed she had broken her leg. In the video, Akshay is seen driving his wife back from the hospital with his mask on. He’s wearing a blue shirt and a black cap. Twinkle filmed the scene from inside the car and shared a glimpse of the deserted streets of Mumbai.

“It is 10:31 am on a Sunday morning and the roads are deserted, except for pigeons and crows -these wonderful gifts for us. Here’s my driver all the way from Chandni Chowk (camera moves to a masked Akshay for a bit). We are on our way back from the hospital,” she said in the video.

“Nope! I don’t have the coronavirus. People go to the hospital for many things, including, like me, for being unusually clumsy. So, this Sunday, my husband’s pocket is lighter, our hearts have never been more full and and my foot is bloody broken. A happy Sunday to you as well,” she added.

Sharing the video, Twinkle wrote, “Deserted roads all the way back from the hospital. Please don’t be alarmed, I am not about to kick the bucket because I really can’t kick anything at all.”
