Deepika Padukone on why she signed ‘Chhapaak’

Deepika Padukone will be seen next on screen in ‘Chhapaak’ which is the real life story about acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The actress recently spoke about why she decided to take up the project.

“I have chosen this film because I found the narrative interesting. I found the story compelling. The story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal required to be told. There was a connection between her grit and determination and human spirit. I have chosen it in the same way as I would have chosen any other film,” said Padukone in a recent interview with Asian Age.

Also talking about signing ’83’, in which she’ll be seen as Kapil Dev’s wife Romi, Padukone also added, “I play the role of Romi Dev, wife of Kapil Dev in the movie and she was instrumental in Kapil Dev’s success, especially when he was the captain. She was part of the support system and I feel connected to that. I always feel that in an athlete’s life the wife and family sacrifice a lot of their own dreams to support the vision of the athlete, the goals that they set and they end up sacrificing their own career. I have seen it in my own family. My mother had been supportive to my father in his career. I think to see the human side, to see what an important role family play in success of athlete I took up this role.”
