Deepika walks on the streets as Malti, captures reactions of people towards acid attack survivors

Deepika Padukone will be seen on the big screen in Chhapaak which is slated to release on 10th January 2020. The film is based on the life of acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal and recently the makers did a social experiment to get the reactions of people towards acid attack survivors.

Deepika did her makeup of an acid attack survivor Malti (her character name in the film) and walked on the streets of Mumbai and visited various shops. She was accompanied by a few more acid attack survivors. The team of the film captured the reactions of people towards them and well, it is surely quite sad to see the way people have reacted to these girls.

The actress posted the video on Instagram and wrote, “Chhapaak Social Experiment Be the change you want to see… A Social Experiment by Team Chhapaak! #Chhapaak in theatres this Friday!(Link in Bio)@vikrantmassey87 @meghnagulzar @atika.chohan 
@_kaproductions @mrigafilms @foxstarhindi.”

Well, we hope that Chhapaak changes the mindset of the people towards acid attack survivors.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak also stars Vikrant Massey in the lead role. Deepika is not just acting in the film but has also produced the movie.

At the trailer launch, Deepika had stated that Chhapaak will be the most special film of her career. The actress had 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.”
