Anubhav Sinha and Taapsee Pannu's Thappad is facing a serious problem, as some section of people have started trending the hashtag #boycottthappad; read more
Today, Anubhav Sinha and Taapsee Pannu's much-talked-about movie Thappad hit the silver screens. The movie got outstanding reviews from critics and Bollywood celebs, and people are calling it a 'must-watch'.
But there are a few sections of people who are against the movie and they have started trending #boycottthappad. The reason is that the people associated with the movie like the director Anubhav Sinha and the lead actor Taapsee Pannu have recently opposed the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Bill).
Not just that, Anubhav has also forced many Bollywood celebs to raise their voice against it. And last month, both Taapsee and Anubhav had taken part in the protest against it in Mumbai.
Hence, netizens are saying that these two people have not only opposed an important Bill like the CAA, but have also instigated the people to protest over it. Some have alleged that they have an anti-national propaganda in mind.
