Deepika Padukone’s much-awaited film Chhapaak had to go through the Censor Board trial before its release on the big screen. And the news is now out that this film has escaped the Censor Board scissors with zero cuts and U Certificate.
Meghna Gulzar, the director of Chhapaak is thrilled with joy that her venture now can be watched by everyone irrespective of their age. The Universal Certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification has come as a surprise owing to the sensitive plot of the movie’s narrative. But surely this certificate will help the film to spread out its important message to the vast audience with great encouragement.
Talking about obtaining the Universal Certificate Meghna said, “They never planned to tone down the film but struck a balance between reality and palatability.” Surely, it is very tough to depict an original tragedy on the screen with full vulnerability while being concerned about the audience’s emotion, and Censor Board clearing such a movie with zero cuts is like the director and actors have struck gold in the portrayal of the same.
Deepika Padukone is going to play the character of Malti based on the real-life of Laxmi Agarwal who became a victim of acid attack in 2005. The movie showcases her struggle of accepting herself after the tragedy and also fighting for justice when the society turns its back on her. This film also features Vikrant Massey in a pivotal role. He will be seen portraying the role of Alok Dixit who is a social activist and Laxmi’s real life partner.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhappak will hit the big screen on 10 January 2020.
