Actor Vikrant Massey will be playing the role opposite Deepika Padukone in Meghna Gulzar's upcoming film in which actress will play the role of an acid attack survivor.
While the title of the movie is still not confirmed by the director, recent reports suggest that the film may be titled Chhapaak.
"We will start the film in the third week of March 2019, and the cast is still coming together. Vikrant is somebody who I wanted to work with since Raazi," Meghna said in a statement.
"And after I saw him in A Death In The Gunj...you know there are some actors that you just want to work with and I'm just glad I got the opportunity to have a suitable character for him in this film, which is Deepika's partner," she added.
Talking about his character, she said: "He's a north Indian man who used to be a professional but decides to leave it all and become an actor. And then starts this campaign against acid attack violence. I’m glad Vikrant is a part of the film and I think I can speak for both Deepika and me that we’re really excited that he’s playing this part."
