When Thappad hit screens in 2020 it became a talked about film for bringing up an important topic to the fore. The film starring Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati that focused up on a domestic violence episode between a married couple and how it impacted their relationship was also appreciated for the wonderful performance by the entire star cast in the film. The ensemble cast included actors like Dia Mirza, Ratna Pathak Shah, Kumud Mishra, Tanvi Azmi, Ram Kapoor. Bombay Times has it that there was yet another actor who was under consideration for a small role in the film. That actor being, Ayushmann Khurrana who was to do a cameo.

Revealing this piece of information, the film’s director Anubhav Sinha, who enjoys teaming up with his actor friends over and over again says, “Yes, we were playing on the idea of having him in a passing shot. So, we worked out on a plan to have him in a cameo as a cab driver. At the time, while we were shooting Thappad in Lucknow, and Ayushmann was shooting for Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan in Banaras. So, logistically, it didn’t work out.”

Khurrana and Sinha had earlier teamed up for Article 15. Interestingly, after watching Thappad, the actor had taken to his social media to praise the film. Calling it a “masterclass”, he also pointed out that it is “the most important film of our generation”. While the duo missed the chance to work together then they are currently working on their new film Anek which is slated to release later the year.
