When Deepika topline 'Chhapaak'



The Meghna Gulzar directorial Chhapaak starring Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey in the lead has been making headlines ever since its announcement.

The film is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal and stars Deepika playing a character called Malti. Talking about the project in a recent interview, Deepika revealed that it was the film’s strong story which convinced her to be a part of it.

Deepika said, “I have chosen this film because I found the narrative interesting. I found the story compelling. The story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal required to be told. There was a connection between her grit and determination and the human spirit. I have chosen it in the same way as I would have chosen any other film.”

Director Meghna Gulzar also shared that Deepika got under the skin of Malti while playing the role.

She commented, “Deepika’s character will stay with her for life. There is Malti, and then there is Deepika who became Malti. Malti’s presence on screen reflects the expression in Deepika’s eyes and on her face which comes through the prosthetics. For me, Malti is Deepika and Deepika is Malti.”

Chhapaak is slated to release on January 10, 2020.
