First look of Chhapaak starring Deepika Padukone has certainly shivered us. Shredding all her inhibitions, Deepika has decided to appear in a de-glam look as acid attack survivor and also an activist Laxmi Aggarwal. It is a biopic on the life of Laxmi. In this movie, Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey will be seen as the lead. In fact, Deepika has turned producer with the movie also. Post Padmavaat, it will be Deepika’s first release at the box office. Through pictures and videos from the sets, it has become quite clear that she has been doing everything in her power to look authentic and do justice to the character.
Recently, Deepika has admitted that Chhapaak is her toughest role till date. During an interview to the Vogue magazine, Deepika has said that the movie has been tough for her emotionally as well. It can be looked as a story of “law, justice, survival.” She has said, “Emotionally, it’s been my toughest role to date. I had to dig really deep to do Laxmi justice.”
Remembering about the day of script reading, Deepika Padukone has said “I was bursting to do it.” Chhapaak is a story of a strong woman who has “refused to curl up and die” in spite of life altering and threatening attack. Later on, Deepika has also said “It’s about so much more: law, justice, survival”
On being a part of Chhapaak, Vikrant Massey has said “I’m really overwhelmed, over the moon with this association with Meghna Gulzar and Deepika. We have done our bit; we have shot the film. The post-production is going on. Yes, the film has garnered a lot of attention already, it is also primarily because of the issue it focuses on. I defiantly believe these are things which we look beyond or don’t pay attention to…..But besides that, I wouldn’t want to speak much about the film at this point in time. I would just want to say that I had a great time shooting and collaborating and I’m just keeping my finger crossed and hope when the film is out on 10 Jan, people really appreciate it as much as we do”
