When Thappad movie was released, it drew plaudits from critics and audience even after the netizens said they would boycot her film. Twitterati has been trending #BoycottThappad on the internet, asking for a ban over Taapsee’s film, Thappad.

Taapsee who is known for his bold and outspoken personality had been vocal during the Citizenship Amendment Act protests. We all know that she joined a peaceful protest in Mumbai and supported the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University. The students were thrashed by masked mobs at JNU and the incident took the entire nation by shock.

Besides that, Taapsee’s co-stars Pavail Gulati, Dia Mirza and her director Anubhav Sinha was also seen taking part in the protest. This annoyed the netizens and they started trending #BoycottThappad as these events are not for promoting their movie.

During an interview, Taapsee said that the personal opinions of actors should not affect their profession to this 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.”
