I have been lost in the trailer even after watching 3 to 4 times I am feeling less. This film explores what it really means to survive an acid attack in India.

Meanwhile, at the emotion-packed trailer launch event, Deepika revealed how she was taken aback by Laxmi's spirit, attitude, uniqueness. "An untold story of trauma and triumph", she wrote in her note.


Celebs were seen expressing their thoughts on social media and praising Deepika for her performance. An English Presenter, Katie Piper, who, herself is an acid attack survivor has spoken about the trailer.

Just looking at the trailer, you'll get chills looking at Deepika scream. She has been walking the red carpet at the Annual Met Gala and also Cannes Film Festival which is held every year. "Usually, we need to sit through the narration process and decide whether you want to do a film or not, it's not often when you come across a story where instantly within the first few minutes of meeting a director that this is what you want to commit your life to. and Chhapaak has been such a film", she said at the trailer launch.


She also added that during her research, she discovered that Laxmi Agarwal's pictures before the attack were strikingly similar to Deepika Padukone's when she was young.

Honoured to receive the award, Deepika said: "With more than 300 million people suffering from the illness, depression is the leading cause of ill health and disability in the world today and a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease". "We have made it with a lot of love, passion, enthusiasm and responsibility". And now, in 2020, she will showcase her skills as a producer as she co-produces her next film, Chhappak.


The film "Chhapak" is scheduled to release next year on 10 January 2020. In the film, helmed by Meghna Gulzar, Deepika will be seen playing the role of an acid attack survivor named Malti.
