The trailer of Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak released on Tuesday, and it looks like an inspirational story. The film revolves around Malti who is attacked with acid on the streets of New Delhi. The Meghna Gulzar directorial chronicles her journey as she fights for justice and regains confidence.

Deepika Padukone’s character here is inspired by the real-life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The film also marks Deepika’s first venture as a producer.

Watch the trailer of Chhapaak here:

The issue of sale of acid seems to be strong in this movie as there is still no law for the sale of the product in our country. Malti’s screams, as she is first treated at the hospital, leave a haunting effect on the audience. Through the trailer, we see changes in Deepika Padukone’s makeup, and we can assume that this suggests the many surgeries and procedures that her character has to go through after the attack.

Meghna Gulzar is known for presenting her story with a balanced approach, and it looks like this will be the case for Chhapaak as well. She has previously directed films like Raazi and Talvar.
