Deepika Padukone released the first look from her upcoming film Chhapaak, which is said to be based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. She took to Instagram to share the look and wrote: “A character that will stay with me forever…Malti. Shoot begins today! #Chhapaak. Releasing- January 10, 2020. (sic)”
After essaying the most challenging role of her career till date in Padmaavat (2018), Deepika Padukone is all set to slip into the skin of even more demanding character as an acid attack survivor in the film, which has been helmed by Raazi director Meghna Gulzar.
After playing the most beautiful woman in Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone showcases beauty in a different light with the upcoming film Chhhapaak. The irony of her characters, however, is while Alauddin was ready to destroy everything for her; the upcoming film will see the man destroying her face.
Shedding light on the same, Deepika Padukone said, “It’s ironical really. Padmaavat was all about physical beauty, the traditional notion of beauty that has filtered down through generations. And now, I am a part of a film that will help people see beauty in a different light, redefine the notion in a way. Having dealt with a man who will destroy anyone and everyone who comes in his way to getting this beautiful woman in my last film, this will be another challenging role. It’s too early to go into details but both are important stories.”
