Chhapaak is based on a real-life incident
The recently released film namely Chhapaak is inspired by the real-life incidents of the notable acid survivor named Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika Padukone portrays the role of Malti which is heavily inspired by Laxmi Agarwal’s story.
The film has been written as well as directed by Meghan Gulzar, also the film has been produced Deepika Padukone as well as Meghna Gulzar in accordance with Fox Star Studios.
The overall budget of the film is around ₹35 crores. By the looks of it, the film has already break-even from the overall collection. At most, the film is going to earn ₹50 Crores till it runs in theatres across the country. Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has decimated Chhapaak in terms of box-office collection and that is the reason why Chhapaak didn’t become a box-office success.
