Deepika Padukone who has done many successful films like Padmaavat, Bajirao Mastani, Piku among others is all set to star in Chhapaak which is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Reportedly, the actor is prepping hard her role and is doing a lot of research on acid attack survivors.
Recently, a source told Hindustan Times, “Deepika first searched websites to learn how the [acid attack] survivors were affected. She is also looking up all available material (photographs/videos) on the internet about Laxmi to thoroughly research her life. In fact, Laxmi herself has been very supportive, even sharing material on her journey that is not available anywhere else or is not yet out in the public domain. Deepika was also provided DVDs and pen drives, containing material about 10 survivors, by the makers of the project. The actor is making sure that every detail is in place”.
The film is being directed by y Meghna Gulzar whose 2018 film Raazi, did wonders at the Box Office. Talking about the film, Deepika earlier told Pinkvilla, “It’s an important story to be told. Period. I don’t think it has anything to do with male or female, it’s about the human spirit. It’s about bravery and triumph. Hopefully, we’ll be able to bring about a social change”.
Deepika is doing great both professionally and personally. Deepika tied the knot with Ranveer Singh last year on November 14 on a private ceremony at Italy’s Lake Come. Earlier, Ranveer was asked if he ever felt insecure when his wife worked with Ranbir. Ranveer replied to this by saying, “Do I seem like an insecure person, really? I am not an insecure type at all. I am extremely secure in who I am and what I am. I know that nobody can love her the way I do, so it’s cool”.
