Chhapaak movie’s trailer was released a few days back and it has touched the audiences to the core. The film is conceived around a real story, the story of Laxmi Agarwal’s life. She is an acid attack survivor and the film’s story reloves around her real life. A guy has thrown acid on her in the streets of Delhi making her face and a few other body parts burn. This incident isn’t the only incident and India has been witnessing such incidents and crimes in a great amount, which needs to stop.
Deepika Padukone is playing Laxmi Agarwal’s reel role alongside actor Vikrant Massey. Recently, Laxmi Aggarwal stated, on being asked how she has been feeling about Chhapaak, “Mai Meghna ma’am se 2016 me mili thi, and unhone bola ki hum is cause pe saath me kaam karna chahte hai kyunki dekha jaye, 2013 se pehle koi bhi acid attack violence ko nahi janta tha. But jab kuch survivors bahar nikalke aaye, aur apni story ko rakhna shuru kia. Toh jab wo kaano me awaaz gayi toh aaj wo ek film ke roop me bahar aayi.”
Laxmi Agarwal went to thank Deepika Padukone and stated, “Society ko ye film ek bohot bada impact degi.”
She further stated, “Thank you, Deepika jo aapne Laxmi ka role play kiya aur mujhe bohot Khushi hai ki, aapne dikha diya ki ‘beauty important nahi hoti’. Awareness bohot jaruri thi, is cause ko bahar lana bohot zaruri tha aur kahi na kahi jo survivors victimise hoti hai, aur jo society ke dimag me tezaab hai, ye film ke through logo ke dimaag se tezaab niklega.”
What do you think of the film? Are you waiting for it to release?
