Hotstar has premiered Deepika Padukone’s new release ‘Chhapaak’.
The Meghna Gulzar film, is based on the trials and triumphs of Malti, an acid attack survivor. From the investigation of the attack to the court proceedings, the medical treatment to the emotional healing – it showcases the power of human spirit.
As well as Padukone, the film also stars Vikrant Massey and Madhurjeet Sarghi. The digital premiere of the film coincides with the television premiere on Star Plus.
Deepika Padukone said, “Chhapaak is not just a film; it is an ode to the strength and spirit of every acid-attack survivor and we truly hope that the audience is able to embrace their incredible journey,as Chhapaak makes its digital premiere on Hotstar VIP.”
Vikrant Massey said, “When I first heard about Laxmi, my heart sank. I felt so melancholic, for being unable to do something about the situation. Amol, my character in Chhapaak, is shown as a strong support to Malti; but in reality I lived that melancholy all over again while shooting for the film. Having said that, I also gradually felt a sense of achievement and satisfaction, as Malti and Amol, supported by an army of people write history together. Watch Malti’s grace, grit and courage as Chhapaak makes its digital-first premiere on Hotstar VIP!”
