While Article 15 continues to make waves, Anubhav Sinha has already moved on to his next. “It’s a film called Thappad, and it’s a subject based on women empowerment. I can’t reveal anything more,” reveals Sinha. but continues, “It’s my first subject based on a female protagonist. Tapsee Pannu plays the lead. I became enamoured by the idea of working with her again after she did Mulk with me. She is so comfortable to work with and she is such a powerful actress without overdoing anything. Tapsee and Ayushmann Khurrana are my favourites.”
Regrettably, Ayushmann does not feature in Thappad. We would have liked to see Anubhav and Ayushmann work together again after Article 15. “There is no scope for him in Thappad. Most of the cast will comprise of women. This film is my homage to womanhood. It will release on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2020. All I can tell you is, it will be even more hard-hitting than Mulk and Article 15,” reveals the director.
