Deepika Padukone and the entire team of Chhapaak have wrapped up their Delhi schedule and are now in Mumbai shooting for the film’s next schedule.
Deepika, who considers this film to be very special will now be shooting in Mumbai along with her co-star Vikrant Massey. Earlier, several videos of Deepika and Vikrant from the sets of the film got leaked and took the internet by storm. A few days ago, Deepika and Vikrant’s lip-locking video on a terrace went viral on social media. We wonder if the same is going to happen in Mumbai.
Deepika Padukone has been working really hard for the film. The Padmaavat actor had earlier mentioned that this character will stay with her forever. Sharing the first look of the film on Instagram, Deepika captioned it, “A character that will stay with me forever…#Malti Shoot begins today!#Chhapaak Releasing-10th January, 2020.” She has done several challenging roles in her career till now but her role in Chhapaak is one of her most challenging ones so far.
Chhapaak is based on the story of an acid-attack survivor, Laxmi, who was attacked at the age of 16 by a 32-year-old man who stalked her and then threw acid at her after she rejected his advances.
Earlier, Laxmi reacted to Deepika’s first look from the film and said, “I was happy to see Deepika’s first look from the film. I was feeling good that a celebrity has come in that look.” Laxmi further added, “A lot of make-up artistes changed a natural face to acid distorted face. And I felt, see, they are finding beauty in an acid-burnt face”.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is slated to release on January 10, 2020. Chhapaak will be clashing with Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior at the Box Office.
