Deepika Padukone’s Depression Phase Returned During Chhapaak Shoot: ‘It Got Bad And I Felt Claustrophobic’
Deepika Padukone is gearing up for her January 2020 release, Chhapaak. The film, which co-stars Vikrant Massey in the lead role is based on the real-life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Ever since the trailer has dropped, Dippy cannot contain the excitement for getting widely appreciated for her portrayal of Malti in the film. The film is slated to release on January 10, setting up a clash with Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.

As she has kickstarted Chhapaak promotions, Deepika Padukone revealed that the film brought depression back for her. While speaking to Rajeev Masand, she revealed, “I needed to have my counselor on the sets of the movie with me. It came out of nowhere and I was also caught off-guard. I started feeling it coming on and I thought maybe I am just tired or it is the long hours. But then it got really bad and I started feeling claustrophobic. It was very tough for me emotionally. To think about those days and put myself emotionally through that.” (ALSO READ: Deepika Padukone On Managing Work And Married Life, ‘It’s Important For Us To Spend Quality Time’)



She further revealed she started working on the film before she got married. In the same interview, she further revealed that the shoot was initially very technical and there were no emotions involved. Since she was getting married and would be unavailable, the makers decided to immediately start on prosthetics. “We had to go through a bunch of look tests. I was going through the motions but it became a reality when we did the final look test. That’s the day the face came on and I told Meghna that I feel just like myself. She said that is the movie. Unhone meri surat badli hai mera mann nahi,” said Deepika.
The dimpled beauty also stated that starting the prep before the wedding allowed her to live with all that work they had done before. Even through the wedding, it was at the back of the actress head. Even during the wedding, the look test stayed with her. “It was the emotional prep, the physical prep is easy,” she added.
