Over the past few weeks, fans of Deepika Padukone have been seeing her promote her film Chhapaak with co-star Vikrant Massey. Based on the life of an acid attack survivor, Chhapaak traces the story of Malti who is based on real-life survivor Laxmi Agarwal. During the promotions of Chhapaak, Deepika conducted several social experiments to showcase how people respond to acid attack survivors and how sensitive the society was towards them. On Wednesday morning, Deepika and team Chhapaak shared another experiment to check the sale of acid in the country. Deepika and team of Chhapaak conducted a sting operation to check how the sale and purchase of acid take place. But, the results of the same shocked Deepika. 

In a video shared by Deepika, we get to see Deepika and Chhapaak team members collaborate to step into the market to check the sale of acid. When everyone starts going to shops to purchase acid, some get asked by shopkeepers for valid id proof. Some of the team members are easily able to get highly concentrated acid without the shopkeeper asking them for id as per the Supreme Court guidelines. This leaves Deepika shocked who is sitting in the car with a monitor and walkie-talkie to hear the conversation with her team members.

At the end of the video, Padukone reveals that her team was able to easily get their hands on 24 acid bottles despite a ruling by the Supreme Court which regulates the sale of acid. A few acid attack survivors appear on the big screen and share the rules put down by the apex court for sale of acid. In the end, Chhapaak star urged everyone to stop anyone from illegally selling acid or buying it. Deepika says, 'acid bikta hi nahi toh phikta bhi nahi.' Meanwhile, Chhapaak is getting rave reviews and Meghna Gulzar's directorial is being appreciated. The film is successfully running in theatres.

what is that terrible comment kangana? this is an amazing effort , go deepika. Are you boycotting varun, alia,sonam and others who said something as well?

well deserved flop for an over rated actress. cheap promotions, where was she all these days when acid was selling freely despite SC rule?? stop cheap tricks and concentrate on proper acting

She made a good film on a noble cause and she should have focussed promoting the film on the basis of it. And in that case it wouldn't have mattered even if film is doing 30 cr business, she would have earned respect which salman khan won't get even after 30 years delivering 300 Cr films but then she spoiled everything by her 30 mins Jnu drama.Now I hate even looking at her, her face screams of opportunism and her emotional lady drama.
