Talking about the look and the whole process of makeup, director Meghna Gulzar shared, “A wrap is an emotional experience, more so for ‘Chhapaak’, because everyone working on it made it their own. Deepika’s character will stay with her for life. There is Malti, and then there is Deepika who became Malti. Malti’s presence on screen reflects the expression in Deepika’s eyes and on her face which comes through the prosthetics. For me, Malti is Deepika and Deepika is Malti.”

She further added, “It was not easy for the leading lady to transform into an acid attack survivor. Deepika had to sit through two-and-a-half hours of prosthetics every day. But you won’t see all that she went through behind the scenes on screen. And that’s the most beautiful part.”

Deepika Padukone‘s character is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The whole team, along with the actors and Meghna Gulzar herself, has put their sweat and effort in the process of making the film as the film is an attempt to shed light on the issue of acid violence in the country.

‘Chhapaak’ is scheduled to hit the screens on January 10, 2020. Stay tuned to Bollywood Bubble for all the latest news and updates.
