Taapsee Pannu reacts to Boycott Thappad Twitter trend: An actor is never bigger than a film

Taapsee Pannu’s next film Thappad released on Friday. The film debunks patriarchy, and is directed by Anubhav Sinha. As the film hits the theatres, Twitterati broke the internet and started trending #BoycottThappad. The trend comes as an outcome of Taapsee and director Anubhav Sinha’s views against CAA in December. The two have been vocal about the protests against NRC too.

“I think personal opinions of actors should not affect their profession and I don’t really think it does to an 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. An actor is never bigger than a film. A film has hundreds of people involved in it. It is stupid to decide whether or not you will watch a movie based on an actor’s socio-political views," Taapsee said, addressing the issue.

Taapsee even became a part of a protest in Mumbai showing solidarity with JNU students. She had the said, “I haven’t expressed my views on CAA because I haven’t studied about it. But the visuals which I saw in Jamia, I didn’t feel those were pleasant. I felt really sad when I saw the videos where students were talking about their plight. I feel something big has happened or something big is going to happen.”

Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Taapsee Pannu starrer Thappad talks about gender-sensitivity and patriarchy. In the film, Taapsee plays Amrita who files for divorce from her husband after he slaps her at a party.
