Deepika Padukone's take on Chhapaak being compared to Uyare

During the interview, the Padmaavat actor was asked about the comparison between Chhapaak and the Parvathy-starrer Uyare.

Deepika stated that everyone has a different way of telling a story. Today, someone else can get up and decide to make a film on Laxmi or on acid violence but she thinks that every film will have a different texture. She further stated that she actually feels like it's a good thing, cinema is such a powerful medium and that is why they choose to tell these stories. It is not like acid violence has not existed in the country, but is not spoken about as much as other issues like rape or other issues. She said that it is nice that even Shabana ji (Azmi) had done a movie last year on a similar subject. There have been a couple of them that have been on similar subjects.
