Earlier, Gulzar told PTI, “In the film with Deepika on acid violence, I am using Laxmi Agarwal as a subject because she is the most known acid fighter. Plus her case and her story has been the most relevant in terms of where legislation on acid violence, medical advancement, compensation for victims and things like that was concerned.”
Talking about Vikrant Massey’s character, the director said, “He is a north Indian man who used to be a professional but decides to leave it all and become an actor. And then starts this campaign against acid attack violence.”
Further, she added, “I’m glad Vikrant is a part of the film and I think I can speak for both Deepika and me that we’re really excited that he is playing this part.”
Chhappak will start its rolling in March 2019.
