Deepika Padukone will be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak next in which she plays an acid attack survivor. The film is one of the most-awaited films of 2020. Chhapaak is based on the real-life story of acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal.
A few months ago, the makers shared the first look of the film which looks promising. The audience can’t keep calm to watch a film based on such an important issue and a story that had stunned the whole nation.
While we have to wait for some more time to watch Deepika Padukone’s next, the Raazi director is all praises for the actress which has added more to our excitement. At the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), the director told PTI, “Deepika is going to be a revelation in ‘Chhapaak’. It is a completely different side of Deepika which people will see. When I say that I don’t mean just the look or prosthetics, it’s also about going into the second level of the character the body language, the gestures and the general energy.”
Megna added, “It’s amazing how quickly she picked up the stuff. Even her smile that she has throughout the film, it’s not the Deepika Padukone smile. It’s Malti’s smile. Somewhere we found a middle path between Deepika’s and Laxmi’s smile. It’s been fulfilling to have had her as a part of this film.”
Chhapaak also stars Vikrant Massey in the lead role. DP has also produced the film which is slated to hit the screens on January 10, 2020.
