On a recent chat show Rajkummar Rao revealed that he was Meghna Gulzar’s original choice for the male lead in her upcoming film Chhapaak. However, as the actor did not have any available dates, the role was offered to Vikrant Massey. Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone who will be playing the lead role in the film has been receiving a lot of appreciation from her fans and friends for her first look in the film.

When Rajkummar Rao was asked why he rejected the film, he stated that he did not turn down the offer. He loved the script but he did not have any dates available. According to reports, the actor kept telling Deepika Padukone and Meghna Gulzar that this is his loss.

Chhapaak is Deepika Padukone’s first production venture. The film is directed by Meghna Gulzar and is based on the journey of acid attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal. After doing Padmaavat, Deepika was not ready to do an intense film such as Chhapaak. She was looking to do a light love story. But when Meghna Gulzar approached her and took her through the script, Deepika knew that she has to do this film.

In an interview earlier, Meghna Gulzar had stated that when she saw photos of Laxmi before the attack, the only person who came to her mind was Deepika. Chhapaak is one of the most awaited Bollywood films and is slated to release on January 10, 2020.

Well I'm glad because Vikrant Massey is just as good an actor and he deserves a break like this.
