The Chhapaak actress has been busy promoting the film until last Friday. On the day of release of the film, Deepika was snapped at Siddhivinayak Temple to seek blessings.
The film is based on a true story of the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. It is directed by filmmaker Meghna Gulzar. The film opened to positive reviews from critics and audiences. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee reviewed Chhapaak for NDTV and wrote: “Deepika Padukone notch up a few points in this commendable effort to bring a horrific true story to the big screen.” He also described the storyline of the movie and said, “Chhapaak lays bare the ugly face of masculinity, the insensitivity of society and the inadequacies of the legal system through the tale of Malti Agarwal, a character modelled on the real-life Laxmi Agarwal, who fights back after a male acquaintance-turned-stalker throws acid on her in a Delhi market in 2005 and shatters her dreams of being “the next Indian Idol”.”
Chhapaak‘s box office collection on Friday was Rs 4.77 crore. It fetched Rs 6.90 crore on Saturday, making a sum total of Rs 11.67 crore for two days.
