Chhapaak: Deepika Padukone preparing herself to portray the acid attack survivor

Deepika Padukone is getting into the skin of her character for her upcoming film Chhapaak. The actress is all set to interpret the role of an acid attack survivor. While it is known that Chhapaak is based on the life and experiences of Laxmi Agarwal, who is now a TV show host and a campaigner with Stop Acid Attacks, Deepika summarized the movie’s essence in her tweet in these words: “A story of trauma and triumph. And the unquashable human spirit.”

Chhapaak marks Deepika Padukone’s first film after “Padmaavat” and her first ever collaboration with the Raazi director. The film is also being produced by Deepika Padukone, who has finally turned a producer like her contemporary Anushka Sharma.

According to Meghna Gulzar, casting Deepika in the role will have a greater impact on the audience. And this is going to be definitely sure since the “Mastani Bai” has already been going great. “I’m grateful and encouraged that she was so spontaneous in her decision to do the film. When you take a face as beautiful as hers and portray her as an acid attack survivor, the magnitude of the violence and damage is that much more resounding,” Meghna Gulzar told Filmfare.
