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.
