Deepika Padukone to play acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal


After much speculation and many rumours, Deepika Padukone has finally zeroed in on her next Bollywood film. The actress, who last played Rani Padmini in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat', has now taken on the role of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in a Meghna Gulzar directorial. Deepika will also be producing the film.

Meghna Gulzar, whose last directorial 'Raazi' starring Alia Bhatt got critical acclaim, feels Laxmi’s story needs to be told to bring awareness in the society. “Using Laxmi’s story as a lens, we are attempting to explore these aspects and the consequences of acid-related violence in our society. This’s what makes this must-told story relevant. Awareness is the first step towards change,” Meghna told to media.

About casting Deepika as Laxmi in her film, Meghna added, “I was instinctively convinced that Deepika would do justice to the character and the story. Also, her physicality matched with what I’d imagined for Laxmi’s character. I’m grateful and encouraged that she was so spontaneous in her decision to do the film.”
