Deepika Padukone is a powerhouse performer, and has proved her mettle as an actress time and again. This time she is back with a story that touches a very sensitive issue and deserves a much-needed space on the big screen. We are talking about Chhapaak, a movie based on the life of acid attack survivour and activist Lakshmi Aggarwal. Chhapaak also marks Deepika Padukone's first movie as a producer.
The trailer for the movie was launched today by Deepika in Mumbai and she looked regal in a black dress.
Deepika wore a black mid-length dress by New Zealand born designer, Emilia Wickstead. The body-hugging dress featured full length fitted sleeves along with gathered detailing around the neckline. She paired her look with a fresh new haircut featuring golden highlights.
Don't miss the stunning crystal earrings that add the perfect amount of bling.
But what really caught our attention was the beautiful footwear from the Italian luxury footwear brand by designer Giuseppe Zanotti. The black strap statement heeled shoes features a big black flower around the clasp of the shoe, looking every inch worthy to be put in a shoe museum. We are absolutely in love. It works really well for an all-black look and adds the much-required drama to an otherwise simple dress and look.
After Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone will next be seen alongside husband Ranveer Singh in '83, a movie based on former Indian Cricket team captain Kapil Dev. She has also committed to play Draupadi in a retelling of the Mahabharata from her character's perspective, which she will also be producing.
Chhapaak is all set to release on January 10, 2020.
