Narrating the surreal experience Meghna Gulzar shared, “It was a moment of serendipity when I asked for a meeting with Deepika. I had many conversations with myself that she just may not be interested in doing the kind of film that I was taking to her. And she wasn’t. She was looking to do something lighter after three intense films. But I didn’t have a light, romantic script for her. My film was based on acid violence. Of a woman who epitomized immense courage and strength, in the face of crippling adversity. It felt like a perfect fit. Deepika took on the film, the character, and me, in a heartbeat.

Deepika Padukone is all set to embark on an entirely new voyage as she begins shooting for her next film ‘Chhapaak’ from today. It also marks her maiden production venture. As she joins Meghna Gulzar in the journey, the director expressed her admiration for the actress.

Kickstarting the first schedule of the film, Deepika Padukone has been evidently excited about the important story that ‘Chhapaak’ would unfold. Meghna Gulzar conceived the idea of the film with Deepika Padukone in her mind and was unsure of the idea that the actress would get on board. However, to her sweet surprise, Deepika Padukone agreed instantly.
