Mumbai: Deepika Padukone took an extended break from films after the release of Padmaavat and the actress seemed in no hurry to sign her next. Only recently it was announced that her next film is a biopic on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.
Laxmi was attacked when she was 15 years old. The man, who attacked her, claimed to be in ‘love’ with her and was 32 years old. His one-sided love made him take a step that changed Laxmi’s life forever. Talking about her biopic and Deepika playing her part, Laxmi told a leading daily, “I am so happy that Deepika is playing the role. I have no right to judge her. How can I judge someone for something, which I can’t do? She has played wonderful characters on screen and I believe she will give her best. I want to thank Deepikaji, Meghnaji (Gulzar) and the entire team who will be working together on the film.”
Directed by Meghna Gulzar and co-produced by Deepika, this film is already creating a lot of buzz ever since its announcement. We are eagerly waiting for this one. Aren’t you too?
