She captioned it: "A character that will stay with me forever...Malti. Shoot begins today! 'Chhapaak'. Releasing January 10, 2020."

Deepika will turn producer with the film.

"It's a very important story and it's a true life incident, so hopefully good things will come out of it," she had said earlier.

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel, an acid attack survivor herself, says she is the biggest cheerleader of the upcoming film "Chhapaak".

Moments after actress Deepika Padukone, who will be seen playing an acid attack survivor in the Meghna Gulzar directorial, was unveiled, several Bollywood personalities like Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra reacted enthusiastically.
