Deepika Padukone, who attended Filmfare Style and Glamour Awards last night, revealed that her next project Chhapaak will go on floors next month. On the other hand, filmmaker Meghna Gulzar has already started prepping up for the film. On Wednesday, she shared a picture from the sets of Chhapaak. In the picture, we can only see a burnt yellow dupatta, probably by an acid attack. Needless to say, the picture is very painful and is speaking a thousand stories without saying anything.
While talking to IANS about Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone said, “I can't reveal much. I can just say that we have already started preparation. In fact we will start filming from next month."
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.
