Taapsee Pannu’s Thappad is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The film raises many questions on domestic violence. While everyone is praising the film Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smriti Irani also has given a shout-out to Taapsee Pannu’s film.
She said that it is not ok to hit a woman not even one slap.
The politician posted a video along with a caption, “How many have heard “aurat ko hi adjust karna padta hai…” How many think “ki maar pitai sirf gareeb auraton ke hi pati karte hai…” How many believe “ki educated aadmi kabhi haath nahi uthata…” How many tell their girls their daughter in laws “koi baat nahi beta aisa to humare saath bhi hua lekin dekho aaj kitne khush hai…”
“I might not support the political ideology of the director or may disagree with some actors on some issues but this is a story that I will definitely watch and hope people watch it with their families. It’s not ok to hit a woman… not even a slap… not even JUST one slap.”
