Instagram: Deepika Padukone


Deepika Padukone was last seen on the big screen in Padmaavat which released in January 2018. Now, after nearly two years we will get to see her on the big screen in Chhapaak, a movie based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The movie is directed by Meghna Gulzar and the first poster of the film was unveiled a few months ago.

Well, now it’s time for the trailer of the movie. Today, Deepika took to Instagram to inform her fans that the trailer will be out tomorrow. She posted, “A moment is all it took… Trailer out tomorrow.Keep watching this space… #Chhapaak @meghnagulzar @vikrantmassey87 @_kaproductions @foxstarhindi @mrigafilms.”


Chhapaak also stars Vikrant Massey in the lead role. While talking about the film, director Meghna Gulzar had earlier stated, “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.”

While talking about Deepika playing her character, Laxmi had earlier said, “I am so happy that Deepika is playing the role. I have no right to judge her. How can I judge someone for something which I can’t do? She has played wonderful characters on screen and I believe she will give her best.”

Chhapaak is slated to release on 10th January 2020. The movie will be clashing with Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Both the movies are biopics and it will be interesting to see which one will win the box office race. We are sure fans of Deepika are super excited to watch her on the big screen after a long gap.
