Deepika Padukone is all set to portray acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in her upcoming film Chhapaak, directed by Meghna Gulzar. Now as the actress begins shooting for it from today, she shared her first look as Malti in the film and we must say, she looks incredible and full of life despite a lingering sadness. Going by it, we are certain that Deepika is going to push the limits to do full justice to her character and nobody apart from her could have fit so beautifully into this character.
Posting it on Instagram, Deepika wrote, "A character that will stay with me forever...#Malti" See for yourself:
In fact, only recently, Deepika said in an interview that since the past six months, she has been busy with look tests, casting and script reading sessions for Chhapaak. "There’s a sense of excitement and also some nervous jitters that everyone in every department faces for the first three-four days into the shoot, till we all get a hang of the characters and the bond between unit members cements," she had said.
Apart from starring in it, Deepika will also co-produce Chhapaak. The film is slated to release on Janaury 10, 2020 and also stars Vikrant Massey.
