The makers of Thappad recently dropped the second trailer where Taapsee Pannu urged viewers to report the trailer and make it the most reported trailer on the internet. The trailer spread like wildfire and has garnered millions of views already. Owing to the response received by the trailer and due to it being reported, T-Series' YouTube channel has received a strike.

Founder of T-Series, Bhushan Kumar commented on the strike and said, "It is good to see that our message to the audience was conveyed and received well by the audience, receiving a strike is a minor speed bump and we are looking at the big picture.

Director Anubhav Sinha shares, "Thappad is a very important project, we have given it our best. The audience's response to the trailer has been phenomenal.
