Deepika Padukone as acid attack survivor

Now, in her next, Chapaak, Deepika Padukone is going to essay the role of an acid attack survivor and activist, Laxmi Agarwal, with her face distorted yet attractive in million ways. Talking about the first look, director Meghna tweeted, "She is courage". Today we have been treated to the first look of the film and let's say, it will linger onto you for quite a while. It's also the actress's first film being bankrolled under her own production house, KA Entertainment. She plays the acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal in the biopic which traces her entire journey and how she braved all odds. The 33-year-old actor also announced that the Meghna Gulzar-directed film will release on January 10 next year. Deepika is not only playing the titular role of the acid attack survivor but also producing the project.
