Deepika Padukone is making sure that she leaves no stone unturned in narrating the story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The actor, who plays Malti in the Meghna Gulzar directorial Chhapaak, is at present shooting for the film in New Delhi. Our photographers on Tuesday caught Deepika shooting in a busy street market of the city. Wearing a salwar-kameez with a bag in her hand, Deepika looked unrecognisable and is surely nailing the look.

In fact, in a few photos, she looks very similar to Laxmi Agarwal.

Deepika Padukone had shared the first poster of the film in March. She captioned the poster as, “A character that will stay with me forever…#Malti”

Laxmi Agarwal survived an acid attack at the age of 15. She was attacked by a man and his two friends because she refused to marry the former. Since the incident, she has been campaigning against acid violence and the sale of acid. She founded an organisation called Stop Sale Acid to achieve this goal. Laxmi Agarwal was bestowed with the 2014 International Women of Courage award by the then US First Lady Michelle Obama.
