Deepika recently took to her Instagram handle and shared a picture of herself completely transformed into the acid attack survivor.

He shared, “Working with an actress of her calibre is not just an opportunity but also a huge responsibility. I’m both nervous and excited.” Director of the movie, Meghna Gulzar really wants to be close to the entire movie making process this time. In an interview, she also shared, “It was that organic because it’s such a moving story. And the decision to co-produce the film with her also happened organically because I wanted to remain close to it through the entire process.”
Laxmi Agarwal was attacked at the age of 15 by a 40-year-old man when she refused her proposal a couple of times. Coming back to Chhapaak, the movie is really special for everyone as it touches a really sensitive topic. The movie will release next year, January 10, 2020.
