Deepika Padukone is currently shooting in Delhi for her upcoming film Chhapaak. Recently, she shared the first look of the film and it received loads of love from everyone. She will be seen as Malti in the film, an acid attack survivor. The movie is based on the real-life story of Laxmi Aggarwal, who was attacked at the mere age of 15 back in 2005. The film co-stars Vikrant Massey and will be releasing on January 10, 2020.
Recently, when the actress was spotted on the streets of New Delhi in Janpath, we got a closer look at her during the shoot. The prosthetics as Malti was surely commendable, and she was seen sporting a yellow kurta. If we take a closer look at her, one might easily figure out the resemblance to Laxmi and it is uncanny indeed. The actress has been shooting in Delhi for more than a couple of days now.
Laxmi, on seeing the first look of Deepika, said, “I was happy to see Deepika’s first look from the film. I was feeling good that a celebrity has come in that look.” Laxmi further added, “A lot of make-up artistes changed a natural face to acid distorted face. And I felt, see, they are finding beauty in an acid-burnt face.”
