The wait is finally over. After almost a two-year break since 2018's Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone is all set to return to the big screen with “Chhapaak”. The trailer of the film has just been launched.
Deepika is playing the role of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in Chhapaak. The trailer shows the journey of Malti (Deepika's character in the film). How she hates her face after the attack and learns to love it. The trailer also shows how Malti leads a campaign to prevent acid attacks in the country by regulating the sale of acid.
The trailer of Chhapaak also shows how Amol (Vikrant Massey) helps her in this struggle to get the sale of acid banned. Deepika shared the trailer saying, "Rarely do you come across a story where you do not need an entire narration to decide if you want to be a part of a film or not. What is even more rare is to not be able to articulate and put into words what you feel for the film and its journey... Chhapaak is all of that and more for me... Presenting the trailer of #Chhapaak", she shared on her social media account.
A little briefing about the survivor, Laxmi Agarwal was attacked in 2005, when she was just 15 years old. The attacker was a 32-year-old man who was trying to make advances towards her. Laxmi battled for life after the attack. After surviving the attack, she started a campaign called Stop Sale Acid.
Deepika, who also turned producer with Chhapaak, is directed by Meghna Gulzar Chhapaak will hit the theatres on January 10, 2020.
