Chhapaak movie was released on 10 January 2020, in which Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey were seen in the lead roles.
This movie could not do well and the reason behind it was Deepika Padukone herself. Let us know what is the whole story.
Chhapaak movie plot
Chhapaak was based on all those girls who were acid attacked. Deepika Padukone played the character of Laxmi Agarwal in this movie, on whom a boy threw acid because the boy had proposed to Lakshmi and Lakshmi had clearly refused.
This movie is based on a true incident which was made by Megha Gulzar. But this movie could not do as well as the expectations were from this movie or we can also say that this movie proved to be a flop.
What Megha Gulzar thinks about Chhapaak’s failure
Recently, there was an interview with Megha Gulzar and she said that Deepika Padukone was the reason behind the failure of this picture because she had stood in the NRC protest.
Three days before the release of the Chhapaak movie, she had gone to Jawaharlal Nehru University and stood in support of the students protesting against Ka and Hell.
These actions of Deepika Padukone had a very bad impact on the movie and people did not go to the theater to watch this movie.
This was the reason that despite the good story plot and acting of the movie, this movie was completely flopped.
JNU visit was a bad promotion strategy
In fact, the movie makers understood that if we supported the students who stood against NRC, then this marketing strategy would be very beneficial for them.
But this method of promotion of the movie backfired on the movie makers and the movie flopped.
Well, now all the focus of Megha Gulzar is on her upcoming movie Sam Bahadur in which Vicky Kaushal is playing the role of an army man, Sam Bahadur is also a movie based on a true incident.
