After the stupendous success of Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone finally confirmed that she will be starring in a biopic on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The film, Chhapaak, will be helmed by Meghna Gulzar. Vikrant Massey has been roped in opposite Deepika Padukone to essay the role of her husband Alok Dixit.
On Wednesday afternoon, Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey began reading sessions for the film. The two of them along with their director and team were seen at a table read session. They are joined by noted lyricist Gulzar. “All things are ready, if our mind be so,” Deepika quoted William Shakespeare in her caption.
The film will go on floors on Monday, March 25, 2019. At Zee Cine Awards 2019, Deepika Padukone said, “It’s so ironic that on the day of Holi, I am off to Delhi for the shooting of Chhapaak. We will start shooting it on Monday. It’s a very important film and I feel that the story which we are showcasing in our film needs to be told.”
Chhapaak will be produced by Deepika Padukone and Fox Star Studios.
