Meanwhile, Laxmi Agarwal, who recently attended an event in Jaipur, spoke about Deepika Padukone playing her on big screen. She had said, “I have never won a medal in school. Who would have thought about a biopic being made on me? I am thankful to Meghna ji (Meghna Gulzar, director of Chhapaak) for considering my work worthy enough to be converted into a film. I am also elated that a celebrity like Deepika is playing me. I just want to say that this film will be a tight slap on that attacker who thought he has ruined my life and to the society who looked at me like a criminal.”
Laxmi further added, “I saw a lot of makeup artists on social media recreating Deepika's look from the film. Unhone vaisa makeup karke apni photos mujhe bheji hui hain. Kabhi socha nahi tha ki ek acid-attack survivor ke face ko bhi log recreate karenge.”
Chhapaak also marks the production debut of Deepika Padukone and it is scheduled to release on January 10, 2020.
