Kangana Ranaut and her family has thanked Deepika Padukone and Meghna Gulzar for making a film on acid attack survivors. Kangana's team uploaded a video on Instagram, saying that watching the trailer of Chhapaak brought back memories of the gruesome incident that happened with her sister Rangoli Chandel, several years ago.
Rangoli had to undergo 54 surgeries after the guy whose proposal she refused threw one litre acid on her face. She was attacked in Dehradun, where she was pursuing engineering. She recalled the incident on Twitter in October 2019. She also revealed that at the same time her sister Kangana was physically assaulted and almost beaten to death.
Referring to the incident and the ordeal her family had to go through afterwards, Kangana said in the video that she is glad and grateful that this issue is being highlighted by Deepika's film Chhapaak. She also said that the film will give more courage to all other acid attack survivors who are struggling to cope with this horrifying episode in their lives.
Chhapaak is based on real-life acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who was attacked in Delhi's Khan Market at the age of 15, back in 2005. The act was seen as a revenge for Laxmi's refusal to marry Guddu, her friend's brother.
Chhapaak is all set to release on January 10, two weeks before Kangana's own film Panga is slated to hit theatres. The actress referred to her own film as well while talking about Chhapaak and Deepika. Watch the video here:
