Laxmi Agarwal, the subject of Meghna Gulzar’s upcoming biopic, is very excited to have Deepika Padukone playing her character.
“I am so happy that Deepika is playing the role. I have no right to judge her. How can I judge someone for something which I can’t do. She has played wonderful characters on screen and I believe she will give her best. I want to thank Deepika ji, Meghna ji and the entire team who will be working together on the film. I am glad that the movie will spread awareness and will help people who are victims of such incidents to come out of it. They will get inspired that if she can do it than why not us.” Laxmi told Hindustan Times in an interview.
According to Agarwal, the film has been in the works for two years now, “I had signed the movie in 2016 and the official announcement has been made now.” Padukone is also making her debut as a producer with this project.
