Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak released on January 10.
Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak is the latest victim of piracy website Tamilrockers. Deepika plays an acid attack survivor in the Meghna Gulzar directorial. The film hit screens on January 10 alongside Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji.
Films like Good Newwz, Dabangg 3, Thambi, Hero, Jumanji The Next Level, Ghost Stories and many more have also been leaked by Tamilrockers in the recent past. The piracy website uses different extensions which makes it difficult for lawmakers to block it. Even the blocked URLs can be accessed through proxy sites.
The Deepika Padukone starrer is inspired by the true story of Laxmi Agarwal who is an acid attack survivor. The film also stars Vikrant Massey. It is already facing tough competition at the theaters from Darbar and Tanhaji, and with piracy, the film's box office numbers could suffer.
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 3.5 stars and wrote, "You look at Deepika Padukone, so far away from the dressed-up, made-up parts she’s done till now, and acknowledge an actor who wants to break out of her safe zone, to actually inhabit someone else’s skin even if it’s burnt. Yes, it’s worthy, but it’s also very watchable."
