Is it unfair to decide the fate of a relationship on the basis of a slap? Can you still stay with the person who inflicts violence on you mentally and/or physically?
GENDER BASED VIOLENCE: Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Thappad’ runs the storyline of a woman who decides to divorce her husband after he slaps her at a party. The movie has created much dialogue some for and against Pannu’s role.
While some including Baaghi 3 director Ahmed Khan said it’s unfair to decide the fate of a relationship on the basis of a slap, others believe it’s indeed a great way of slamming domestic abuse and toxic patriarchy.
Recently, controversy’s favorite child Rangoli and her sister Kangana Ranaut shared their two cents on the issue. Sharing her views about the same Rangoli wrote that she would rather abandon her partner for months or years than taking a divorce if he slaps her.
Sharing her sister Kangana’s views on the matter Rangoli said that Kangana would demolish someone who slaps her, but she apparently, likes being spanked.
After getting an earful from the ‘Panga’ star for sharing their private conversation, Rangoli came up with a bizarre explanation and a more bizarre comparison between spanking and slapping. Have a look at her tweets below:
While Rangoli clarified how the intent behind a slap is important to take any action, the slap and spank comparision was still awkward both for us and Kangana, for sure. What are your thoughts on the matter? Tell us!
