Deepika will portray the role of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in the flick. Deepika is also marking her debut as a producer with this film. Recently, while talking at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Meghna Gulzar opened up about Deepika's character. She said that the role would showcase a completely different side of Deepika in the film. "It's not just the look or prosthetics we used, it’s about the body language, gestures, and general energy," said Meghna.
She also added that the smile that Deepika has throughout the film, it’s not the Deepika Padukone smile. Fox Star Studios is bankrolling this project. 'Chhapaak' is all set to hit the screens on 10th January 2020.
