Known for the versatile choice of films, Deepika Padukone who drives the audience crazy with her glamour, her opulence, beauty and great acting skills that the actress is loved for. The actress is coming up with the film titled Chhapaak inspired by true events where she's playing the character of acid attack survival Laxmi Agarwal. Filmmaker Meghna Gulzar opened up about how casting Deepika Padukone was significant for the role in Chhapaak.

Talking to a leading daily, Meghna Gulzar shared, "Every film has its destiny. But casting Deepika was significant since the amplification of how horrific this [acid attack] has become that much more when you see a face like Deepika’s get disfigured. And hats off to Deepika for taking it head-on! In this film, she has shed everything that she is known for — the way she looks, the glamour, opulence, the set-up, the hair, makeup, costume, and even the jewelry. She is just with her craft,” 

Ever since the hard-hitting trailer of the movie was released, Chhapaak has been the talk of the town and has left a strong impact on the viewers. Deepika has been widely appreciated for undertaking the role of Malti and doing full justice to it. The makers are leaving no stone unturned to communicate the message of self-belief and change the existing norms of society for betterment.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, produced by Fox Star Studios, Deepika Padukone's KA Production, Meghna Gulzar & Govind Singh Sandhu's Mriga Films, written by Atika Chohan and Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is set to hit theatres on 10th January 2020.
