The movie “Chhapaak” hit the big screen on 10 January 2020 and had its clash at the Box Office with Ajay Devgn’s “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior”. Although the Box Office collection shows that Tanhaji is being more appreciated by the audience rather than Chhapaak, there is a cult of movie lovers who have cherished this real-life story on the big screen.
Not only has “Chhapaak” received good reviews from the critics but the Bollywood fraternity is also not hesitant to express their views for this film. After Ranveer Singh showered his praises for Chhappak’s entire teams’ hard work to create the masterpiece, Javed Akhtar too took on his Twitter to pen down a heartfelt note. The lyricist tweeted, “Chhapaak is a film that has come straight from Meghna Gulzar’s heart. Art is to entertain but it is different from a circus. Good art makes you feel, think, grow. Chhapaak does it…”
