Taapsee Pannu’s Thappad got a special screening held in Delhi and it attracted a number of renowned filmmakers from the industry. Filmmaking veterans like Anurag Kashyap, Sudhir Mishra, and Hansal Mehta were also spotted at the event. During the screening, an audience member asked the lead actor if it was a conscious call to add 'only' one slap in the movie.

Taapsee Pannu said that what just one slap does to Taapsee's character is the beauty of the film.
