Actor Deepika Padukone, who is bringing the story of real-life acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal to the big screen with her upcoming film 'Chhapaak', has wrapped up shooting for the film. Calling it the most "precious" film of her career, Deepika shared the news on her Instagram account along with a group picture from the last day of the movie's shoot. She captioned the post, "It's a wrap on THE MOST PRECIOUS film of my career...see you all at the movies! 10.1.2020 Chhapaak."
Deepika's first look as the acid attack survivor was unveiled on March 25. Revealing her look from the film, the actor had posted a picture on her Instagram and the resemblance was uncanny! Deepika's character will be called 'Malti' and she looked absolutely unrecognizable in the first look.
Apart from the amazing prosthetics, it's the intensity in the actor's eyes that wins you over. The "Piku" actor effortlessly emotes the undying human spirit and determination of the survivor in the picture.
The upcoming movie went on floors on March 25. The film's team had earlier shared a picture of the script reading session of the movie. Giving an essence about the story, Deepika had posted a tweet on December 24, last year, writing, "A story of trauma and triumph. And the unquashable human spirit. Elated to collaborate with Fox Star Studios on #Chhapaak."
The film is being helmed by Meghna Gulzar and also stars Vikrant Massey. It is being co-produced by Deepika and Fox Star Studios. This marks the first collaboration between Deepika and Vikrant. 'Chhapaak' also marks Deepika's production debut in Bollywood. 'Chhapaak' is slated to hit the theatres on January 10, 2020
