Mumbai: The first look of 'Chhapaak' that presents Deepika as an acid attack victim has left a strong impact amongst the audiences. The reaction to the trailer which carried immense curiosity has been massive with audiences witnessing Deepika as Malti who tells Laxmi's story on the big screen for the very first time.

Overwhelmed with the Chhapaak trailer's response, director Meghna Gulzar expressed her happiness in a statement. She said, "As a filmmaker, I feel extremely grateful when a trailer is accepted by the audiences. We always hoped that the audiences would relate to the story that we were about to share. With the kind of impact the trailer has created, we are extremely elated and encouraged, and can’t wait for the audiences to witness this story on the big screen."

Meanwhile, Deepika who's known for her beauty and grace play Laxmi, an acid attack survivor has been intangible. The actress has beautifully balanced the right emotional chord with the audiences in the sneak peek of the trailer.

The trailer was launched on Worlds Human Rights Day which served as a perfect coincidence for Meghna. The makers could not have asked for better synchronicity for the release date of the trailer.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, produced by Fox Star Studios, Deepika Padukone’s KA Production, Meghna Gulzar & Govind Singh Sandhu’s Mriga Films, written by Atika Chohan and Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is set to hit theatres on 10th January 2020.
