Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey joined director Meghna Gulzar to launch the trailer for Chhapaak. The film is based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. The event was an emotional one with Deepika, whose character has been inspired by Laxmi, tearing up after the screening of the trailer.

Check out pictures from the launch here.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is based on the real-life story of Laxmi Aggarwal, who survived an acid attack in 2005 at the age of 15. Part of the film will reportedly explore the PIL that was subsequently filed in the Supreme Court in 2006 and which lead to the amendment of laws regarding acid attacks in 2013. Deepika plays a character named Malti in the film and Vikrant Massey’s role is modelled on that of Laxmi’s partner, social activist Alok Dixit. The film releases on 10 January.
