Deepika Padukone is all set to for her next film, Chhapaak. For the uninformed, the film is based on acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. In 2005, when she was 15, she was attacked by a 32-year-old man named Nadeem khan (Guddu), for rejecting his advances. We got a chance to speak to Meghna Gulzar, the director of Chhapaak and asked if she has shown the film to Laxmi and her husband, Alok Dixit.
She said, “Laxmi has seen the film. She has watched the final cut which is offline. Before going into the final process, we needed to show her the movie. She is very happy with it and loves how it has turned out. I am waiting to show her the finished product with the gridded picture, sound, place, background music and all of that. It is going to be a memory I will cherish.” She added, “Alok is also very happy with the way film has turned out to be and loves what Vikrant has done with his part.” (Also read: Trending Entertainment News Today: Deepika Padukone on Chhapaak vs Mastani and Padmaavati, the inspiration behind Varun Dhawan’s Street Dancer 3D look
As you might be aware, Deepika Padukone is returning to the big screen after a long hiatus. With Chhapaak, Deepika debuts as a producer. "It depends on the kind of content that comes my way and what I feel like doing that time," says Deepika Padukone during an exclusive conversation with BollywoodLife, when asked if this is the kind of cinema she would like to continue in the coming years.

"The journey that I had with this film, the responsibility that I'm carrying of portraying a real-life character I'm playing in the film," DP reasons her getting emotional.
