Deepika Padukone dedicates ‘Performer of the Year’ award to Laxmi Agarwal

Deepika Padukone is undoubtedly one of the finest actors in Bollywood. With her versatile performances, the actress has always managed to bring alive the characters on the big screen. She was seen playing the role of an acid-attack survivor in her last film Chhapaak and earned much appreciation of her brilliance. During the recently held Femina Beauty awards, Deepika bagged the “Powerhouse Performer of the Year” award and dedicated it to the real-life acid-attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

Deepika shared a couple of photos with Laxmi from their shoot for Femina Magazine and wrote, “Chhapaak truly has been the most difficult film of my career... Having said that, Chhapaak for me is not just a film. It is a movement;that has challenged the definition and our understanding of ‘Beauty’. Famous American Swiss Psychiatrist Elisabeth Ross said, the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known suffering, known struggle, known loss, known defeat...and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. I dedicate tonight’s award to Laxmi Agarwal and every single acid attack survivor who on this most incredible journey have shown us all what beauty truly means!”
