Meghna Gulzar's Chhapak: VIkrant Massey Cast Opposite Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone had a marvellous 2018! Though her last movie was Padmaavat, she did end her year with a bang as she tie knots with long-time boyfriend, Ranveer Singh.
Now, she has been signed as the lead in Meghna Gulzar’s biopic, Chhapak. The movie will tell the story of an acid-attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. After signing Deepika, last to join the cast is the Death in the Gunj star Vikrant Massey.
Meghna shared, “The cast is slowly coming together. Vikrant is somebody I’ve wanted to work with since Raazi after seeing him in A Death in the Gunj. In the film, he plays a North Indian boy who used to be a professional before he decided to become an actor, then, started a campaign against acid violence which is how he came to meet Laxmi in real life. I speak for both Deepika and myself when I say that we are both really excited to have Vikrant play this part.”
We only hope the project to start soon!
