Deepika Padukone is all set to return to the movies after a sabbatical and we are super thrilled to see her. As she preps to start working on a Bollywood project soon, we cannot wait for her next to go on floors. by now, everyone knows that Deepika will be starring in Meghna Gulzar's next, Chhapaak. The film is based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal and her husband. The film is likely to go on floors next month and Deepika has already started researching on Laxmi's character. Vikrant Massey will be playing the role of her husband, and he too has started his prep. Will Ranveer Singh Reject Chhapaak Director, Meghna Gulzar's next Biopic on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw?

In the midst of a busy schedule, Dippy managed to take some time out and chill with her favourite director, Meghna ahead of the shooting. The two were spotted in Mumbai tonight as they headed out of a restaurant. Like always, DP had her million dollar smile on, while Meghna too was all smiles as the paparazzi clicked her with Deepika. We like how the two ladies are bonding and we'd sure want to see Vikrant join them too next time! Chhapaak: This is How Deepika Padukone is Prepping to Play Acid Attack Survivor Laxmi Agarwal's Character in the Film.

To know more about her, Deepika is doing everything it takes to know more about Laxmi. She is researching the internet, looking up every other available material that will help her understand Laxmi better. Shedding further details about how Deepika is trying to know the character better, a source was quoted by a daily saying, "Deepika first searched websites to learn how the [acid attack] survivors are 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 of about 10 survivors, by the makers of the project. The actor is making sure that every detail is in place." Interesting much? Anyway, coming back to these photos, both the actor and the director seem to be quite happy with each other. Well, that's all that we want!
