Ahmed Khan was asked about his views on critically acclaimed film Thappad.

Thappad was also considered as an answer to Shahid Kapoor's film Kabir Singh which earned over Rs 300 crore. The film had garnered criticism due to narrative of male character at a dominating and violent position against the woman of his life. Anubhav Sinha brought Thappad as a hattrick film after Mulk and Article 15. Taapsee Pannu also landed into controversy for standing in support with students of Delhi while protesting against CAA.

When Ahmed Khan was asked to share his views on film Thappad, he said that when he saw the film, he found the story very strange. He did not understand the relationship of husband and wife which ends with a slap. The director believes that if the husband had slapped his wife than she could have slapped him twice. Ahmed Khan felt that a slap cannot define the relationship status of husband and wife who love each other.

Explaining about it further, he said that even if he slapped his wife, she can slap him back and end the entire conversation there. But when i tell her to end marriage even she can say the same thing to me. But does a slap decide whether a slap can stay together or not is the question. Everybody has a different point of view and looking towards the entire scenario.

Actress Taapsee Pannu reacted to the entire incident and said that such relationships does exist but at the end, the audience gives the final verdict to a film. There are relationship in which there is love and respect. She further said that Ahmed Khan can continue doing films he is comfortable with and the actress will do films she will be comfortable with.
