Deepika Padukone was last seen on the big screen in 2018 release Padmaavat. Nearly after two years, we will get to see Deepika on the big screen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak. The film is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

Recently, the trailer of the film was launched at an event in Mumbai which was attended by Deepika Padukone, Vikrant Massey, and Meghna Gulzar. At the trailer launch of the film, Deepika got emotional and was in tears.

At the event, while talking about the film, the actress said, “It’s not often when you come across a story where you know instantly in the first few minutes of the meeting with the director that this is what you want to commit your life to and Chhapaak is that for me. It’s been an incredible journey emotionally putting it together and I feel like irrespective of how it’s received and how it does, it will be the most special film of my career. I truly hope you see the impact that the film is supposed to have on all of us and the reason why we did this movie; I hope you see in it what we saw in it. We have made it with a lot of love, a lot of passion, a lot of enthusiasm, and with a lot of responsibility.”

The trailer of Chhapaak is simply amazing and Deepika has nailed it as Malti in it. The movie is slated to hit the screens on 10th January 2020.
