Deepika Padukone plays Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor in her latest movie Chhapaak. Her first look amazes everybody.

The first thing we will surely do as looking at this picture is to admire the soul that Deepika Padukone blows into it. When she voiced her assertion of playing Laxmi Agarwal, the victim surviving from an acid attack, in Chhapaak, we dimly anticipated that she would do her utmost to describe every detail in the film and emphasise the enforcement of justice.

Besides the master makeup technique, Deepika’s eyes are the brightest jewel in this picture. They are the eyes that not only permeates sadness but also emanates everlasting belief and hope to rise and fight against all the odds. Saying that she was born for this role is not wrong.

Recently, Ramesh Bala shares Deepika Padukone’s first look on Twitter. "Here is @deepikapadukone's FL as Acid Attack Survivor from the movie #Chappak She plays a character #Malti - Based on the true story of Acid Attack Survivor/Activist #LaxmiAgarwal Shooting starts today in Delhi.. #MeghnaGulzar directs," he captioned it.

Besides, Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak's director, shares the story of using persuasion to get Deepika to take the play in Chhapaak. "It was a moment of serendipity when I asked for a meeting with Deepika. I had many conversations with myself that she may not be interested in doing the kind of film that I was talking to her. And she wasn’t. She was looking to do something lighter after three intense films. But I didn’t have a light, romantic script for her. My film was based on acid violence of a woman who epitomised immense courage and strength, in the face of crippling adversity. It felt like a perfect fit. Deepika took on the film, the character, and me, in a heartbeat.”

Laxmi Agarwal became an acid attack victim in 2016 as a 15-year-old little girl. Laxmi's family knew the perpetrator, and he mercilessly harmed her just because she refused him.

Currently, Deepika is all set to play Malti, the main character of Chhapaak, opposite Vikrant Massey. This film also shows her strong mark as the producer under KA Entertainment’s umbrella. More, Deepika has just started filming for the movie in New Delhi.
