Chhapaak posters: Deepika Padukone's Malti breaks free
Mumbai - 10 Dec 2019 18:30 IST
After the trailer was released earlier today, the makers of the upcoming Chhapaak (2020) have unveiled two different posters featuring Deepika Padukone as Malti.
Written by Meghna Gulzar and Atika Chohan, Chhapaak is the story of an acid attack survivor who becomes an inspiration for others like her.
The two first-look posters show the lead character Malti in two important phases of her life. The first poster depicts Padukone as Malti with a dupatta covering her head and shielding her scarred face.
Of Resilience. And Hope.— Meghna Gulzar (@meghnagulzar) December 10, 2019
Malti. And her untold story.
Unveils before you. #Chhapaak in theatres from 10th Jan 2020. #AbLadnaHai @deepikapadukone @masseysahib @Thelaxmiagarwal @alokdixit17 @foxstarhindi @_KaProductions @mrigafilms pic.twitter.com/b662rvF3Fl
The second poster, after a considerable passage of time, shows how far Malti has come. She is no longer the victim ashamed to show her face, but greets her future with joy.
Inspired by the life of Laxmi Agrawal, Chhapaak is due to be released on 10 January 2020 alongside Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, which stars Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol.
