So, ever since the announcement of Deepika Padukone slipping into the character of an acid attack survivor broke, the news has already generated headlines all over.
A source close to the actress said, “Deepika Padukone is being lauded because instead of choosing a glamorous role, the leading lady of Bollywood is playing a character which challenges the notion of beauty, amongst the masses.” Chhapaak, highlights the life of an acid attack survivor and puts forth the confidence of the victim to be taken as a lesson and marks her as an inspiration for those who have faced the similar situation. The film is all set to release on January 10, 2020.
