Last year, Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ raised a number of eyebrows with its slap scene, where the character of Shahid Kapoor slaps Kiara Advani. Though the movie turned out to be a blockbuster hit, but the makers of the movie were slammed left, right and center for promoting ‘toxic masculinity’ with its content.
After the slap scene in the blockbuster movie stirred controversy, the director of the movie came out in support of his movie and had said:
“When you are deeply in love and deeply connected with a woman, and vice versa, there’s a lot of honesty in it. If you don’t have that physical demonstration… you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see anything there.”
His statement didn’t go down well with the netizens who slammed the director for his opinion and views. But that was last year, so why we are talking about it now?
Well, netizens were reminded of Kabir Singh’s slap scene after the trailer of Taapsee Pannu’s upcoming movie “Thappad” was released yesterday.
