Chhapaak Official Trailer Starring Deepika Padukone as Malti, an acid attack survivor, Chhapaak takes you through the phases of victim shaming, accusation and court trial in a girl’s life. We see the insensitivity a survivor has to deal with when questioned about a heinous crime like this. You are left empathetic for Malti within the first few seconds itself.
Moving on, we are introduced to Malti after her surgery and she is struggling to get used to her new appearance. Judgment, prejudice and fear-laden, Chhapaak Official Trailer moves from a cry of help to a story of hope in just a minute. We see strong Malti fighting against the odds. The Chhapaak film also stars Vikrant Massey, who plays the ray of hope in Malti’s life and Deepika Padukone and Vikrant’s chemistry, though unconventional, looks like something we will surely enjoy.

Through her story, the film makes an attempt to understand the on-ground consequences of surviving an acid attack in India, the medico-legal-social state of affairs that transpires after the acid has been hurled and the face is irreparably burnt.
