Anubhav Sinha has already set a high mark with his last film, Article 15 (2019). For his next film, Sinha has teamed up with a major production house, T-Series. T-Series head honcho, Bhushan Kumar and Sinha will be a part of multiple projects, beginning with the Taapsee Pannu-starrer, Thappad (2020).
A statement from the makers described that the film 'aims to explore the very basis of a man-woman relationship and gender equality, through an engaging story of a husband and wife'.
Thappad will mark the second collaboration between Sinha and Pannu since Mulk (2018). The film will also mark the return of the T-Series and Sinha combination. The director made his debut as a feature filmmaker with the T-Series-backed musical, Tum Bin (2001).
Sinha and Taapsee had announced the project in July earlier this year, with the actress calling the project 'close to her heart.'
Cheers to the new beginning with some good food! This one is a subject way too close to my heart. I’ve been wanting to do this since years. It becomes exciting when it happens with the ‘Man of The Moment’ @anubhavsinha— taapsee pannu (@taapsee) July 7, 2019

Speaking of the collaboration, T-Series head, Bhushan Kumar said, "I am happy to associate with Anubhav once again. He is not only a gifted filmmaker but also has a great sense of music. He makes movies that are relevant and start conversations among the audience and I am keen to associate with this kind of cinema. With our collective strengths together, we are hoping to deliver some extraordinary, content and musically rich films."
Whether Sinha will return to commercial and musical films, which he has stayed away from since Mulk (2018), is not yet known.
Sinha also stated in a press release, "Magic happens when creative people come together. I am really looking forward to this partnership with Bhushan Kumar, as he gives the creative liberty and has a good understanding of what can work with the audience and what will not. I am happy to associate with Bhushan and combine our creative forces together for the pure love of cinema."
In addition to Thappad, T-Series are currently in talks with the director for multiple projects which will be announced soon.
Thappad is due to be released on Women's Day, 8 March 2020.
