2018 was an eventful year for Deepika Padukone. Apart from featuring in one of the biggest blockbusters Padmaavat, the actress tied the knot with long-time boyfriend Ranveer Singh. After not being on a film set for almost a year, the actress is set to come back on the silver screen with Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, which is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal.
On the Facebook live that the actress did today, she revealed that earlier she had planned to do a love-story after her marriage. But one day, director Meghna Gulzar entered into her office and narrated the story of Chhapaak and within 5 minutes of the narration, she knew that was her next film. Talking about the venture, she said it is the journey of a human spirit and victory. And we hope the film will definitely garner praises from the audience. Chhapaak will be produced by Deepika herself and will feature Vikrant Massey in a key role. The actor has been seen in films like Dil Dhadakne Do, Lootera and The Death In The Gunj earlier.
