It is necessary to boycott the trolls that attack Taapsee Pannu with #BoycottThappad | Hindi Movie News


Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Thappad’ was attacked by trolls on Twitter with the hashtag #BoycottThappad the day before launch. The trend exceeded Taapsee’s personal opinions about CAA. Trolls compared Taapsee with Deepika Padukone, whose movie ‘Chhapaak’ went through a similar experience. Trolls had asked for a boycott of ‘Chhapaak’ after Deepika’s visit to JNU expressing solidarity with the students. These are some of the attacks against Taapsee and ‘Thappad’ and why it is important that we boycott the mentality of these trolls.

Troll Attack 1: First Deepika, now Taapsee, use national themes to promote their films. They have to understand the sensitivity of the problem.

To link Taapsee Pannu with JNU’s visit to Deepika Padukone is not only incorrect but also inaccurate. Both Deepika and Taapsee are two separate individuals with a mind of their own. Both have strong opinions on issues close to them. Taapsee’s views on CAA have no relevance to the promotion of his film ‘Thappad’. If someone has to be sensitive to what is happening in society, it is this troll who has used his presence on social networks to attack Taapsee and the film.

Troll Attack 2: I hate anti-national celebrities

troll 3

Calling anti-national Taapsee is exactly what trolling means. Taapsee’s decision to attend a JNU peaceful meeting place was his personal choice. During the ‘Thappad’ promotions or even before that, Taapsee has never made statements or given sound bytes that can be considered as ‘anti-nationals’. Labeling a Bollywood celebrity as an antinational is the easiest and probably most unfortunate attempt to get his way.

Troll Attack 3: I’ve decided to boycott Thappad because Taapsee supports #Antinational #Anitmale against #Men


Dear Mr. Troll, have you seen ‘Thappad’? How can you label it as ‘anti-masculine’ without even seeing it? His attempt to jump into the troll car has been exposed through his vile tweet. Calling Taapsee an anti national without any evidence or basis is the weakest attempt to appear as a troll. Maybe if you look at ‘Thappad’, you could get a slap in your prejudiced mind!
