In the picture, we can see an entirely different Deepika Padukone who has pushed the limits to ensure she does justice to the character. Her intense eyes depict the underlying sadness but also the determination to come out a winner against all odds.
For the uninitiated, Laxmi was 15 when she was attacked by a 32-year-old man who was an acquaintance of her family at a New Delhi bus stop in 2005. Since then she has been helping acid attack survivors and promoting campaigns to stop such attacks. A significant part of the story is the PIL in the Supreme Court which inspired the amendment on acid laws in 2013.
‘Chhapaak’ also features Vikram Massey and will reportedly hit the theatres on 10th January 2020.
