Here’s Why Deepika Burned a Prosthetic After Shooting ‘Chhapaak’

Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film, Chhapaak, which is inspired from the life of an acid attack survivor, is undoubtedly one of her most ambitious projects so far. On 13 October, Deepika opened up about her experience working on the film.

While speaking at the Jio MAMI Movie Mela in Mumbai, Deepika opened up about something deeply personal. She said that she ended up burning a particular piece of prosthetic right after finishing the filming for Chhapaak because of the way the entire experience made her feel. “We got a piece of prosthetic and burned it and I watched it burn,” said Deepika.

Playing an acid attack survivor was difficult and Deepika had to work really hard to play the character. She also added that it’s by far one of the hardest roles she has had to take up. Prosthetics were a huge part of Chhapaak’s production. Deepika also added that it would take almost three hours to get that done before the actual filming could begin.
