Baaghi 3 director Ahmed Khan didn't find the subject of Taapsee Pannu starrer film Thappad convincing enough. Calling it 'strange', the choreographer-turned-director said according to him, a slap can't decide the course of a relationship. When Ahmed was asked for his comments on Thappad during Baaghi 3 promotions, he said, ''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 further added, "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?"
But then everyone has a different perspective, Ahmed concluded.
When Taapsee was asked to comment on the same, the actress said there can be relationships that Ahmed is talking about where a couple is comfortable with a slap. Having said that, she will continue doing films which she is comfortable with and same is the case with Ahmed Khan, Taapsee added.
"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 audience who o give out the final verdict."We have always seen relationships where there is love and 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 actress said.
