The trailer of the much-awaited film Chhapaak, featuring Deepika Padukone as an acid attack survivour, will roll out on the occasion of World Human Rights Day i.e on December 10, 2019. Deepika made the announcement in three posts on her social media accounts. Two of the posts were blank black background. The third was a teaser that showed splashes of watery like substance -- acid, going by the theme of the movie, with the caption "A moment is all it took."
The film happens to be the actress's debut as a producer and is directed by Meghna Gulzar. Vikrant Massey will be seen opposite Deepika in the film.
Meghna, in a recent interaction with PTI, said, “Deepika is going to be a revelation in Chhapaak. It is a completely different side of Deepika which people will see. When I say that I don’t mean just the look or prosthetics, it’s also about going into the second level of the character – the body language, the gestures and the general energy.”
"It’s amazing how quickly she picked up the stuff. Even her smile that she has throughout the film, it’s not the Deepika Padukone smile. It’s Malti’s smile. Somewhere we found a middle path between Deepika’s and Laxmi’s smile. It’s been fulfilling to have had her as a part of this film," she added.
Chhapaak is slated to release on January 10.
