All about rights!

Meghna Gulzar is a keen observer and has developed a taste for the real cinema. One such tale that drew Meghna’s attention was the story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. It was traumatic and inspiring for her on various levels. The Deepika Padukone starrer film ‘Chhapaak’ is set to release on January 10 will be releasing the trailer on December 10.

World Human Rights Day is celebrated globally every year on December 10. People celebrate cinema on this day to sensitize and inspire them and instil in them virtues and humanitarian ethics. Launching the trailer on this date is a sheer stroke of serendipity and for Meghna, couldn’t have asked for a better date.

Sharing her thoughts on the significance of the date, Meghna averred, “It is actually a nice coincidence that our trailer is getting launched on December 10, which also happens to be – Human Rights Day. ‘Chhapaak’ is a story of acid violence. The basic act of acid violence violates the human rights of the person who is attacked by acid and their life, their physicality is changed forever. So I really couldn’t have asked for better synchronicity for the release date of our film.”

Meghna feels that the versatility and craft that Deepika displays on screen is remarkable. She will bring the right balance emotionally and physically and will strike a chord with the audience like no other.
