Chhapaak: Deepika Padukone's First Look as acid attack survior will leave you intrigued

Deepika Padukone's first look for Chhapaak is out and, we must say it looks intriguing all the way. Last seen in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Padmaavat in 2018, Deepika Padukone is all set to wow the audience with Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak and, her first look is proof.

Taking to Instagram, Deepika Padukone shared her look for Chhapaak and wrote, "A character that will stay with me forever...#Malti Shoot begins today!#Chhapaak  Releasing-10th January, 2020"

"Deepika Padukone as #Malti in #Chhapaak... Directed by Meghna Gulzar... Costars Vikrant Massey... Filming begins today... 10 Jan 2020 release... Produced by Fox Star Studios, #DeepikaPadukone's KA Entertainment and #MeghnaGulzar's Mriga Films", writes film critic Taran Adarsh.

In an earlier interview, director Meghna Gulzar revealed that the audience will see a disfigured Deepika Padukone in the film. She said, “You won’t be seeing Deepika, you know. You will be seeing a disfigured Deepika. There is an uncanny similarity between the survivor and Deepika.”

Laxmi Aggarwal, on whom the film is based on, said, “I am so happy that Deepika is playing the role. I have no right to judge her. How can I judge someone for something which I can’t do. She has played wonderful characters on screen and I believe she will give her best.”

In Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone will be playing the role of an acid attack survivor. The film is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal who runs the organisation Stop Acid Attacks. She is paired opposite Vikrant Massey in the film. Chapaak will also mark Deepika’s first production venture.
