Actress Deepika Padukone is excited about her upcoming film ‘Chhapaak’, which will tell story of an acid attack survivor.

“A story of trauma and triumph. And the unquashable human spirit. Elated to collaborate with Fox Star Studios on ‘Chhapaak’,” Padukone tweeted on Monday.

The Meghna Gulzar directorial is said to be based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. A Fox Star Hindi project, the film also stars Vikrant Massey.

Talking about Massey’s character, Gulzar said: “He’s a North Indian man who used to be a professional but decides to leave it all and become an actor. And then starts this campaign against acid attack violence. I’m glad Vikrant is a part of the film and I think I can speak for both Deepika and me that we’re really excited that he’s playing this part.”
