SUNDAY TIMES WEB DESK: Meghna Gulzar has begun prepping for her next, Chhapak, which stars Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey. Dippy starts shooting for the film shortly.

Chhapak is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal and it also stars Vikrant Massey and is co-produced by Deepika herself.

Word is Meghna is busy with the look tests for the various characters. As Dippy is also co-producer, she is excited to be part of the pre-filming processes as well. Looks like hubby Ranveer Singh’s infectious enthusiasm is rubbing off on her.

Vikrant Massey plays a north Indian man who used to be a professional but decides to leave it all and become an actor. And then starts this campaign against acid attack violence. Meghna had told earlier, “I’m glad Vikrant is a part of the film and I think I can speak for both Deepika and me that we’re really excited that he’s playing this part.”
