Ekta Kapoor, others slam 'tight slap to Thappad' box office report, ask 'Why so uneasy?'

Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad completed one week at the box office on Thursday. While the Taapsee Pannu-starrer became a talking point for receiving praises by celebrities and netizens, its first-week collection too created a buzz. While the collections got termed ‘below the mark’ by a well-known trade analyst, a popular trade portal had a stinging take on the figures.

The portal wrote ‘audience gives tight slap to Thappad’, referring to its ‘rejection’ by the audiences. The portal sarcastically highlighted it being the ‘most important film ever made in India’. It went on to state that such ‘gimmicks’ deserve ‘this kind of treatment’ from the audience, and even stated that the film looked ‘bad’ right from the trailer. 

Celebrities reacted strongly to the report, particularly its headline.

Mini Mathur asked why it was ‘almost celebrating’ the movie receiving lesser than expected money, and called it an ‘ugly and vicious reportage’ of the industry it represents. She also gave it a ‘Thappad’ for its ‘personal delight.’ 

Ekta Kapoor stated that a good film like this does not deserve a caption like this.


Kubbra Sait asked they were so ‘uneasy’, adding that she was keen on watching the film, urging the portal to ‘indulge in retail therapy’ and write again when feeling better. 

Karanvir Bohra wondered if the portal had any issue with the makers. He expressed that the collection was ‘highly commendable’ and that every film does not need to earn Rs 100 crore for it to be a success.
