The preparations for the Laxmi Agarwal biopic titled Chhapaak finally began on Tuesday. Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the project has been in the news for a while as it will see Deepika Padukone playing the role of an acid attack survivor as well as mark the beginning of her journey as a producer.

“We will start shooting next month and that’s all I can reveal,” says the actress about the film’s progress.

Initially, Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal were considered for the male actor’s role in the film, which is now being played by Vikrant Massey of A Death in the Gunj fame.

Laxmi was attacked at the age of 15 and she had to undergo several surgeries. Later, she took up the job of helping other acid attack survivors and continues to promote campaigns to stop acid attacks.

Apart from work, Deepika is also trying to make sure that her husband follows some rules at home when it comes to eating and sleeping. “I think he should follow more rules. The more successful you get, you forget taking care of yourself,” says the actress.
