The first look of Taapsee Pannu from Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming social drama Thappad has been released. The director-actor duo previously collaborated on Mulk.
The intriguing still features Pannu in a state of felling being confused, as she has been slapped by someone. Eyes closed, and a winkled forehead, Pannu’s agony and surprise is evident in her expression. The trailer of Thappad will release on 31 January.
Thappad also consist of starcast such as Pavail Gulati, Tanvi Azmi, Ratna Pathak Shah and Dia Mirza.
The idea behind the film, which deals with a particular aspect in a man-woman relationship, had been pushing Sinha for quite some time. But he never knew if he could make a full-length feature out of it.
Talking further on the subject the actress told sources, “It wasn’t a script when I heard it first, but I was instantly interested. Anubhav sir feels as strongly about the subject as I do. It’s a woman’s perspective on relationships, what they want, with a common thread linking them.”
