Bollywood’s leading lady Deepika Padukone has begun the shoot of her upcoming film Chhapaak, the Meghna Gulzar directorial has been the most time-consuming film of the actress’ career.
The applaud worthy look of Deepika Padukone’s next film is, however, the most engaging task and it takes almost three to fours every day to get the makeup right. Even more, time is required to get off the makeup and return to her normal look.
Deepika’s character in the film is inspired by real life acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Laxmi told IANS in an interview that she found it amazing how people were finding beauty in the ‘burns’ that Deepika has sported for the movie.
“I was happy to see Deepika’s first look from the film. The response and the messages I got on social media was overwhelming. In fact, it was my daughter’s birthday, and more than messages for her, I got congratulatory messages about the film. I was feeling good that a celebrity has come in that look. A lot of make-up artistes changed a natural face to acid distorted face after that (on social media). And I felt, ‘see, they are finding beauty in an acid-burnt face’,” said Laxmi.
Vouching for the human spirit, Deepika Padukone embarks on the journey of Malti in Chhapaak. The actress not only stars in the film but also marks her first venture as a producer.

Deepika Padukone has been currently watching The Marvelous Mrs Maisel to divert her mind which has now become a routine for the actress past the shoots.
