Taapsee Pannu's Thappad Director Anubhav Sinha's Abusive Tweets On Film's Box-Office Numbers, 'These MOF*S Get My Collections Before Me'
Anubhav Sinha’s latest outing Thappad, starring Taapsee Pannu, made it to the big screens last Friday. The social drama opened to rave reviews and has raked in a decent box-office collection on its first weekend. However, Anubhav Sinha wasn’t very happy with the early BO reporting, or we rather say the kind of language used by an esteemed trade publication. Taking to his Instagram, Sinha, who has earlier directed films like Article 15 and Tum Bin, blasted the publication and everyone supporting it.

It all happened after the publication in question, tweeted the film’s early figures with the caption, “Audience Gives TIGHT SLAP To #Thappad.” This didn’t go down well with a lot of celebrities, including filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who responded to the tweet. Anubhav Sinha took notice of his tweet and responded to him by using cuss words. He wrote, “And I love you too.... इन हरामज़ादों ने फ़िल्मों का कोठा बना दिया है। last I checked it was an art form. My money. My movie. My profit. My loss. Who the fuck are you? Have I issued any public shares? Have you bought any??? Go watch the film. Like it. Hate it. Your call.”

Anubhav added, “These motherfuckers seem to get my collections before me. Just for general awareness, I get my collections in 2-3 days. Before that whatever they put out is sheer speculation and their sweet desire.”

Soon after, a woman confronted the filmmaker on his usage of abusive words and he was quick to apologise “My apologies for my language ladies. Sincerely. It is the love of those 150 people who made Thappad for the film that was being disrespected that shot me off. Apologies to all women and elders and younger ones on my timeline. SORRY!!!” wrote the filmmaker.

Meanwhile, Thappad collected approx Rs 22.79 crore on its first weekend.  (ALSO READ - International Women's Day 2020: Why We Need Women Like Kangana, Swara, Taapsee In Bollywood Who Aren't Afraid To Speak Up)
