Chhapaak is a Hindi Language drama film which was directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by her as well as Deepika Padukone as Malti and Govind Singh Sandhu under the production company of Fox Star Studios.
Deepika is well known for her script selection and her acting skills which makes us more excited about this film. The story is based on the true events of an acid attack survivor. The film was written by Meghna Gulzar and Atika Chohan.
The movie also stars Vikranth Massey as Amol, Madhurjeet Sarghi and Ankit Bisht with equally important roles. We have witnessed her amazing acting skills in Piku, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat and now she is with Chhapaak. After Padmaavat which was released in 2018, this is the next film of Deepika Padukone acting in the lead role. In between, she has a special appearance in zero which was also released in 2018.
The music was composed by Shankar Eshaan Loy. The movie was edited by Nitin Baid and cinematography by Malay Prakash. Along with Fox Star Studios, the filmmakers also joined hands with production companies like KA Productions and Mirga Films. 120 minutes is the run-time of the film which is one of the least runtime movies.
Deepika Padukone had announced the film on 24 December 2018, on her Twitter account. From March till June 2019, the movie took place in New Delhi and Mumbai. The trailer was launched by Fox Star Studios on 10 December 2019.
And the movie is made by the director of Raazi and Talvar which were a successful movie at the box office. The story and screenplay in these movies were good which would say that Chhapak would be a blockbuster at the box office. As Deepika is back at the box office after a long period, this would be an important film for her.

A hard-hitting tale of a horrendously ignored crime.
It takes guts for a superstar actress like #DeepikaPadukone to be part of such a path-breaking film – RJ @DIVYASOLGAMA@deepikapadukone @meghnagulzar @Thelaxmiagarwal @foxstarhindi pic.twitter.com/Kq84UQzciU
