OSNEPALNEWS, Kathmandu, 25th March: Deepika Padukone’s first look from Chhapaak is out she looks absolutely unrecognizable as Malti, the acid attack survivor/activist. The actor had shared the picture on Monday, announcing the film’s release date and the commencement of filming. She called Malti, ‘a character that will stay with me forever’.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chaapaak is based on the life and experiences of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who is now a TV show host and a campaigner with Stop Acid Attacks. In the poster, Deepika features as Malti – the name of her character in the film.
