This morning is different, not because of the undying IPl season spirit, but because we got to see a picture which is powerful, brave and captivating at the same time. We see photo shots of models and actresses, where they look breathtaking, but here is a picture which will give you hope and that desire to live and fight on.
Yes, one of the most awaited film of Deepika Padukone is Chhapaak, directed by Raazi director, Meghna Gulzar and now we got to witness Deepika’s first look as acid survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika Padukone herself shared this powerful first look from her film on her official Instagram and Twitter profile. Here take a look.
A character that will stay with me forever…#Malti
Shoot begins today!#Chhapaak

When Deepika announced that she will be portraying the life of acid survivor Laxmi, we were stunned, not because it is Deepika but because finally we got someone as a team, brave enough to portray such a powerful and sensitive topic on screen. After Raazi we should definitely trust Meghna Gulzar that she will do justice with this film.
Fans and followers are captivated instantly by that lingering sadness and hope against all odds that Deepika so gracefully portrayed just with her eyes. Praises are from all over.
You're going deliver something beyond phenomenal, looking forward to it!! 💙

While talking about the film, director Meghna Gulzar said “It was a moment of serendipity when I asked for a meeting with Deepika. I had many conversations with myself that she just may not be interested in doing the kind of film that I was taking to her. And she wasn’t. She was looking to do something lighter after three intense films. But I didn’t have a light, romantic script for her. My film was based on acid violence. Of a woman who epitomized immense courage and strength, in the face of crippling adversity. It felt like a perfect fit. Deepika took on the film, the character, and me, in a heartbeat”.
This much awaited film is all set to release on 10th January, 2020, starring Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey. This is also her home production, under KA Entertainment.
So, how excited are you about the film?
