The story of acid attack survivor and activist Laxmi Agarwal comes alive on screen through the film.
Earlier in March, Deepika had shared the first look from the film where she looked absolutely unrecognisable.
The actress also shared a photo from the wrap and called Chhapaak "the most precious film" of her career. She plays a character named Malti and the film will showcase her journey spanning a decade after her attack.
