The talented actress will be seen stepping into the shoes of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in the film.
When Deepika shared her look from the film, it became the talk of the town as it shocked the entire nation and recently in an interview with a magazine she spilled the beans on how difficult it was for her to portray
Laxmi on the silver screen.
Calling it one of her toughest role to date, Deepika said that it was a tough role for her emotionally as the film talks about more than just survival. While she was bursting to do the role but had to do a lot of hard
work to do justice to her character and Laxmi.
The film which is helmed by Meghna Gulzar also features Vikrant Massey and is slated to release on 10th January next year. Apart from this, Deepika will also be seen in Kabir Khan's '83' alongside her husband Ranveer Singh.
