Talking about Chhapaak and its trailer Meghna Gulzar was further quoted as saying, “The story is about the act of acid violence which violates the life of victims both physically and mentally, thus, taking away their right to life. I couldn't have asked for better synchronicity of the day for the release of the trailer. This actually was not on our mind, but now that this has happened it’s like a higher-order alignment working out and I am extremely grateful for that.”
Deepika Padukone As Malti
On why Deepika Padukone was the right fit to play Malti in Chhapaak, Meghna Gulzar further said, “For me, Deepika was the absolute right fit for this role. Firstly, for her physicality, as there is an uncanny resemblance between Laxmi and her. Also, I have seen Laxmi’s picture before she was attacked. Secondly, as an actor, the craft that Deepika brings onto a film is very critical for me and the film. That was the kind of performance that was required. I don't think I would have made the film without Deepika as I don't see who else I could have cast for this film.”
Chhapaak also features Vikrant Massey in the lead role. This movie also marks Deepika Padukone’s debut as a producer. The film is all set to be released on January 10, 2020. Stay tuned for further updates from the world of entertainment.
