Taapsee has been garnering a lot of fantastic reviews for her role in Soorma and even more appreciation for taking on a much talked about topic in Mulk. The Anubhav Sinha directorial venture doesn’t shy away from talking about islamophobia and from the trailer it shows that Taapsee seems to be the voice fighting for justice.
In the current social climate, Islamophobia is a very real and important topic that needs to be discussed not just by the media but everyday citizens who are affected by it and those who are swayed by the views as well. When the trailer of Mulk released, one such citizen, a lawyer named Vasid Shaikh who isn’t just a Muslim citizen but also a criminal lawyer decided to voice his opinion on the trailer. He took to appreciating the director for choosing such a strong topic and was all praise of Taapsee for taking on this strong role.
This is what Taapsee had to say about the video, “When we made the film we knew we are going to get as much love as hatred on social media. We were kind of prepared for it. But the kind of appreciation coming from this lawyer, a professional who probably would’ve seen such cases in his career, makes it really special. In Mulk we have tried to raise the idea of humanity over any religion and what is the true nationalism and it’s only a matter of few days before we see how our audience responds. This particular video was very encouraging.”
You know an actor is doing brilliant work when even the protectors of the law appreciate your efforts in changing the discourse of the country.
