    Taapsee Pannu’s much-awaited film ‘Thappad’ has finally hit the screens today. Unfortunately, a section of people is boycotting the film as Taapsee attended Anti-CAA Protest in Mumbai last month.

    On Jan 6, Taapsee had made a Tweet where she invited people to join the protest. Calling for a boycott, a user wrote, “We boycott @taapsee movie thappad. As she is the part of #UrbanNaxals and #TukdeTukdeGang. We don’t want to see Naxals movie.”

    Another user wrote, “I too will not tolerate such remarks against my Nation & Government. I will boycott films & ALL PRODUCTS endorsed by such irresponsible stars.”

    With such hate tweets, #BoycottThappad started trending on Twitter.

    Addressing the same, Taapsee said in an interview, “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. An actor is never bigger than a film.”

    She also said that a few thousand tweets may not necessarily affect a film.

    Well, previous to this, Bollywood film Chhapaak was boycotted by fans because Deepika Padukone visited JNU and took part in the protest a day before the release of the film. As a result, the film garnered very low ratings and collections and it was labeled a ‘Big Flop’ at the box office.

    We now have to see how ‘Thappad’ performs at the box office.
