After taking the internet by storm with the heart-wrenching trailer of 'Chhapaak', the makers of the Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey starrer kickstarted a new campaign ‘Ab Ladna Hai’. The promotional video features acid attack survivors taking a step forward and fight against all the odds in the society. The video also shows normal people doing their bit to make the world a better place, while Deepika and Vikrant recite an inspirational poem. 

The official synopsis of the video reads: "Ab Ladna Hai is a poetic expression of the core emotions that we preserve in our hearts. This poem, written by Gulzar Saab is a beacon to drive a much-needed change in society. Because a beginning is the foundation of transformation. Let’s turn. Let’s awaken. Let’s begin. Kyunki #AbLadnaHai." Acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, based on whose life the movie is being made, took to her Instagram handle to share the video.

The poem narrated by Deepika Padukone is — 

Dekh samajh ke gaur karna hai,
Thodi si koshish aur karna hai,
Ab Ladna Hai

Har chehre ko sawarna hai
Chaand ka daag bhi bharna hai,
Ab Ladna Hai

Maila Mausam saaf karna hai
ZIndagi se insaaf karna hai
Ab Ladna Hai

Bimaar nazar ka ilaaj karna hai
Jo kiya nai tha wo aaj karna hai
Ab Ladna Hai

Seham Seham ke nai rehna hai
Buland awaaz mein ab kehna hai,
Ab Ladna Hai

Ab Ladna Hai...
