The makers of Chhapaak have unveiled the first look of Deepika Padukone from the film. Deepika plays the role of Malti in the Megna Gulzar directorial that draws inspiration from the life of acid- attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The Twitter was set abuzz in a matter of minutes when they saw Deepika in the skin of the character, aided by prosthetic and special make-up.

After becoming the biggest box office opener of 2019, surpassing the likes of Ranveer Singh's Gully Boy, Ajay Devgn's Total Dhamaal and Amitabh Bachchan's Badla, Kesari is roaring high at the box office. Released on the occasion of Holi, and enjoying an extended weekend in the festive spree, Akshay Kumar's period war drama has collected a total of Rs. 78-79 crore net at the theatre window, reports Box Office India. In another news, Radha Ravi, actor and president of the Tamil Nadu Dubbing Union, who was slammed by a section of the Tamil film fraternity for his ‘sexist and slut-shaming’ remarks against actress Nayanthara, said that his statement was misconstrued.

The trailer of Vivek Agnihotri's The Tashkent Files also released today. Centring on the mysterious death of India's Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shashtri, the film will aim to lay rest to the conspiracies that followed in the wake of his demise in Tashkent, Russia.
