Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak, which tells the gruesome as well as an inspirational tale of Malti; an acid attack survivor has not been able to churn moolah at the box office. Despite the actress being appreciated for her performance, the film is showing no signs of growth in terms of collection. It was Deepika's JNU visit which garnered negative publicity for the movie and this can one of the major reasons it's struggling to even touch Rs 50 crore mark at the ticket window. And so in order to keep the buzz around the film intact, DP in collab with a makeup artist created a Tik Tok video wherein she challenged the artist to recreate three of her best film looks, which also included Chhapaak's Malti look. Well, this particular marketing gimmick by Padukone received a lots of backlash online and now even Kangana Ranaut has expressed her distaste on the same.

In an interview with India Today, Kangana got candid and said that her sister was hurt after watching the video. “Rangoli is an acid attack survivor and she was very hurt seeing the video. Sometimes, marketing teams tend to go overboard with their promotions, and I am sure Deepika must be having some explanation for this,” said Kangana. “The people who are hurt like my sister should be apologised to. This is not a make-up look and nobody should try and achieve it. That kind of insensitivity should be apologised for and there is no harm in doing that because we all make mistakes,” she added.
