Deepika Padukone has wrapped up the shoot of her upcoming film Chhapaak on Tuesday and called it the “most precious film” of her career. The Piku actress took to social media and made the announcement while sharing a photo from the sets of film.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is based on the real-life story of an acid attack survivor from Delhi, named Laxmi Aggarwal. Deepika plays a character named Malti and the film will showcase her journey spanning a decade after the attack. A significant part of the story is the game-changing Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme Court, which inspired the amendment of acid laws in 2013.
