Anubhav Sinha is back with his new filmy outing, which is, Taapsee Pannu starrer Thappad. The trailer gives us a fine glimpse of the director's take on physical abuse. It is not just about the person who is responsible for it but also the society's casual attitude towards it. As the trailer dropped, the fans are totally going gaga over the plot and the performances of the actors. In fact, they are also mercilessly trolling the makers of Kabir Singh including Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani. Thappad Trailer: Taapsee Pannu's Film Is The Perfect Answer to How Preeti Should Have Reacted to Kabir Singh's 'Just One Slap'.

Thappad shows how Taapsee's character files a petition against her husband who slaps her in the heat of the moment. While the family and society mock her for taking it 'too far' for 'just one slap', she takes a bold stand that even a single slap makes you guilty of domestic violence and it is NOT OKAY. The fans were soon reminded of the scene in Kabir Singh where Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh hits Kiara Advani's Preeti!

Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga too had justified the scene saying, "if you don't have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don't see anything there. If you can't slap, if you can't touch your woman wherever you want, you can't kiss, you can't use cuss words, I don't see any emotion in that." Well, this has now trickled down on Twitter through memes and tweets, Check them out below.
