Chhapaak trailer launch LIVE UPDATES
Chhapaak movie trailer launch live updates: Deepika Padukone plays acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in the Meghna Gulzar directorial, which also stars Vikrant Massey.
The first trailer of Meghna Gulzar's upcoming directorial Chhapaak is out. The film based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal has Deepika Padukone playing the titular role of Malti. Vikrant Massey also stars in the pivotal role of Amol, who is based on Laxmi's real-life partner Alok Dixit.
The trailer release is coinciding with World Human Rights Day.
Chhapaak was announced earlier this year and went on floors in March. Several photos and videos from the film's sets have already been doing the rounds for months now. In fact, Deepika's first official look from the film went viral.
Calling Chhapaak, the toughest film of he career, Deepika said, "Up until then I had felt that emotionally a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film was the most difficult because with him it's not just about the character or the film but everything that goes into making it, all the hurdles, so by the end of it you're exhausted for various reasons... On the last day, I asked Meghna to get made an extra piece of prosthetic which I needed. I went to a corner, threw alcohol on it and burnt it... I wanted everything to become ash. I stood there till that entire process was over and only then I felt a part of it had left my system, my body. But it's not entirely possible as none of these characters leave your system. As of now, this has been the toughest film I've done."
Chhapaak, backed by Fox Star Studios, also marks Deepika Padukone's foray into film production. The movie is set to release on January 10, 2020.

Talking about Chhapaak, director Meghna Gulzar told PTI, "Deepika is going to be a revelation in Chhapaak. It is a completely different side of Deepika which people will see. When I say that I don't mean just the look or prosthetics, it's also about going into the second level of the character the body language, the gestures and the general energy."
Meghna, who has co-written the film with Atika Chohan, said Deepika met Laxmi Agarwal briefly before the shooting began and was able to portray the part with a lot of sensitivity.
"It's amazing how quickly she picked up the stuff. Even her smile that she has throughout the film, it's not the Deepika Padukone smile. It's Malti's smile. Somewhere we found a middle path between Deepika's and Laxmi's smile. It's been fulfilling to have had her as a part of this film," she added.Follow us on Telegram for all the latest Entertainment news
