From the trailer of the film with the tag line, “Thappad- Bas itni si baat?”, which created wide banter as well as tremors that indicate the serious impact to a slap to the multi-city ongoing screenings, Thappad is being hailed as the most important film of the year.

The makers of the film have been dropping message-driven promo units to garner the right conversations. Taapsee Pannu and the makers have now extended their support to a Change.org petition, asking for disclaimers to be added in films that showcase on-screen domestic violence scenes.

To deliver this striking message, Taapsee is seen in a concept video questioning viewers – why don’t we have a disclaimer for ‘Thappad’ on-screen when we have one for alcohol consumption, smoking and animal cruelty?

Change.org India and the makers of Thappad have come together to urge the censor board to make it mandatory for films that showcase any kind of domestic violence in their films to carry a disclaimer.

Taapsee Pannu took to her Twitter handle and shared the video saying, “………….”. (her link and copy to be added here once she’s posted it )

Nida Hasan, Country Director, Change.org India, “When most of our films are filled with misogynistic portrayals of women, films like Thappad trigger our collective conscience. Taapsee’s support for Mahika’s petition is a powerful statement for the Indian film industry to take responsibility for the right messaging on domestic violence that affects millions of women in our country every day.”

The actress urges the viewers to sign a petition after the entire video takes stock of everything that is shown as a disclaimer for a film, much in a conversation between the two lead actors. Definitely, the makers are coming up with unique takes with each video. Not only the earlier asset got a strike for being the most reported, as was asked by Taapsee from the audience but even this video is set to become a movement with its impactful message.

Deepika 

Richa Chadha has once again emerged triumphant, proving that an actress’ popularity  is dependent on her craft and credibility. In a list collated, Richa grabbed the second rank achieving an average of 6.59. The top garnering average was scored by  Taapsee Pannu who stood at 6.72. Following Richa in third and fourth spots were Vidya Balan and Alia Bhatt. Richa, known for her exemplary quick-witted characters, from Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey to Zarina Malik In Inside Edge to her praiseworthy part in Panga earlier this year, is a hit with fans on social media. The beauty of her craft is her ability to surprise the audience with each character, consciously not repeating her zone. Her comic timing is widely lauded because of the iconic Fukrey series but the risk taker that she is, Richa grabs gritty roles like the one in Section 375 or Love Sonia, playing the parts with aplomb.

Thrilled about it, Richa says, “It’s a matter of great pride for any actor when her work strikes a chord with the fans. This is reassuring that I am headed down the right path. I will continue to choose characters and do roles that are daunting and push me out of my comfort zone. In this year itself, I have some great films which have tested my caliber and been great learning experiences for me. I am glad that actresses are no longer expected to be porcelain beauties without opinions. Going by the list we have here, all of us are a bunch of power ladies ruling the roost with our work that leaves behind an indelible mark.”
