Deepika to play an acid attack survivor

After playing the role of Rani Padmini in Padmavat, Deepika wasn't seen in any film. But after such a big role, here is what she is prepping up to be and look on screen.

The latest news is that the actor will be playing an acid attack survivor in Meghna Gulzar's next and at the same time, she has also turned producer of the film.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh has announced the news on his Twitter handle. The story will be based on the real life acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Laxmi was attacked at the age of 15 in 2005 and since then, she has become a campaigner and speaks for the rights of acid attack survivors.

The film is definitely based on a true story and in fact, it can be called a biopic too. Yet, no information about other cast of the film and the characters from the real life story are not yet unveiled. Meghana Gulzar's last movie Raazi was a commercial hit at the box office and is also critically acclaimed. Going by the way Raazi has performed at the box office, we can expect that even this film will be good enough to make it big at the box office.
