‘Thappad’ song ‘Ek Tukda Dhoop’ is out. Taapsee Pannu’s search for hope & deafening silence after a slap from her loved one is heartbreaking.
Taapsee Pannu fans have been eagerly waiting for the release of Taapsee Pannu starrer Thappad, ever since its trailer was released a few days back. Recently, Taapsee shared the first song from the film titled Ek Tukda Dhoop. This slow number is a tragic tale of what happens to true love if there is no respect involved, that it falls apart one day.
The song is sung by Raghav Chaitanya, the music is composed by Anurag Saikia, and the lyrics for the melodious number are penned by Shakeel Azmi. The music video of this song features adorable moments between Taapsee and Pavail Gulati, who plays her husband in their happily married life before it falls apart after a slap. In the video one can see how she cooks for him, waves goodbye to him when he leaves for office but refuses to forgive him after he slaps her at a party.
Taapsee maybe for the 1st time seems to be really attached to her character Amrita as she recently posted a heartfelt picture on social media saying,
“Amrita …As an actor, some characters set you free and some suffocate you. This was the latter for me… her righteousness, her maturity to handle every situation, determination deep inside and an infectious calmness on the outside…. she made me grow up.”
In an interaction with IANS, Taapsee had said,
“The character Amrita was suffocating for me in the end and I took it as a challenge. After 15 days of shooting, I started feeling claustrophobic. It was tough for me to get out of my firebrand image and mind space and get into the skin of this character.”
Helmed by Anubhav Sinha, Thappad is set to hit the silver screen on February 28. Taapsee Pannu will share the screen space with Ratna Pathak Shah, Tanvi Azmi, Dia Mirza, Ram Kapoor and Kumud Mishra amongst others.
