Deepika to play an acid attack survivor

It’s back to work for Deepika Padukone as the ‘Padmaavat’ star will soon start shooting the biopic of Indian acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

Currently, her character is undergoing prosthetic tests. And in the meantime, the producers have revealed the title of the film, which is ‘Chhapaak’ or ‘Splash’.

The film will see Deepika star as Laxmi, while ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ actor Vikrant Massey will play her partner Alok Dixit. In the film, he plays a North Indian man who left his professional career for acting, and then, launched a campaign against acid violence, which is how he came to meet Laxmi in real life.

Deepika not only signed on to act in the film but is also co-producing this film. The film, which will be shot in Mumbai and Delhi, is being directed by Meghna Gulzar.
