Deepika Padukone has turned into the producer for the first time with the movie “Chhapaak”. The actor was so much affected by the script of Meghna Gulzar, that she not only decided to act in it but also decided to back it financially.
So, we can say that Deepika is very possessive about Chhapaak’s movie, which showed in her response when she was asked if his hubby Ranveer Singh had put money in Chhapaak.
During the title song launch of Chhapaak, a reporter asked Deepika if Ranveer had put money in Chhapaak film. Deepika took offense to this question and replied, “Excuse me, yeh mere khud ke paise hain. Kisne bola yeh? Excuse me, It is my own money.” But it was all good as the audience erupted in laughter over the question and Deepika Padukone’s reply. Meghna added that it is wrong to assume that Ranveer put his money.
Deepika also spoke that she does not consider Chhapaak movie to be a risk. She added that “People are saying that we have taken a big risk, but I don’t think of this film is a risk. It is something that she (Gulzar) has lived with for so many years. As a human being and a director, she was ready to tell the story. Gulzar came to me with it and I instantly said yes to the film, I even did not over-thinking or over-processing the film”. She tells that whatever Deepika and Gulzar have done to make this film was done very instantly and instinctively, and with a lot of heart. They want people to receive Chhapaak film the way they have made it.
Chhapaak also stars Vikrant Massey alongside Deepika Padukone. The film is inspired by the story of Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor. Chhapaak will hits screens on January 10, 2020.
