Deepika Padukone has wholeheartedly dedicated herself to Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak. The actress, who returns to the silver screen after two years, has given her heart and soul to the film which is based on the life acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. DP's character is named Malti and she stars opposite Vikrant Massey in the film. For last one month, Padukone was in Delhi to shoot the first schedule of Chhappak. She was spotted filming on the streets of the capital and her pictures as Malti, went viral over the web. Crowds gathered in large numbers to catch a glimpse of Deepika near Janpath.
Since she did a lot to get into the skin of her character, the actress underwent a heavy burden of emotional moments which took time to stabilise her. For the same, she watched a few light-hearted stories which uplifted her mood. One such series which DP watched was The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. And now we heard that, to protect herself from the scorching heat of Delhi, Deepika is having Sattu, to keep herself hydrated.
For the ones who are unaware, Sattu Sharbat is popular across the country and has its own variations in states like Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. We must say, DP knows how to keep herself fit and fab. Meanwhile, she has wrapped up the first schedule of Chhapaak and is back in the city.
Talking about Chhapaak's release, it will hit the silver screen on January 10, 2020. Revealing as to why she signed Meghna's directorial venture, Deepika had earlier said, "Meghna walked into the office and took me through the story. In five minutes of speaking with her, I knew in my heart that this is what I wanted to do next. Something about Meghna herself, Laxmi's story and Meghna's conviction in this film... It was very similar to Piku. In just five minutes of meeting the director, I knew that this is the film I wanted to do."
Only time will tell if Deepika does justice to Laxmi Agarwal's life on the screen or not. But, given the way she has played her roles in the past, we are hoping that the actress won't disappoint us and the audience. She was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
