Deepika Padukone and Laxmi Agarwal have an uncanny similarity: Meghna Gulzar on Chhapaak
Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone is all set to work with Raazi director Meghna Gulzar for the first time in the upcoming movie Chhapaak.
According to reports, the film is a biopic on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. At a recent event, Meghna opened up about the movie in which Deepika is playing the role of Laxmi alongside actor Vikrant Massey.
"You won’t be seeing Deepika, you know. You will be seeing a disfigured Deepika. There is an uncanny similarity between the survivor and Deepika," the director said while adding that the film will show people what violence can do to one person.
Talking about the movie, Deepika had said, "When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it’s not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer."
The movie currently is at the pre-production stage. The release date of Chhapaak is yet to be announced.
