Deepika Padukone was last seen in Padmaavat and since then she has been on a sabbatical making a comeback with Chhapaak which is releasing on 10th January 2020. The movie also stars Vikrant Massey and it narrates the tale of an acid-attack survivor.
Despite the strong and sensitive topic, Chhapaak has managed to get a U certificate for itself. It’s yet to be seen if the makers have compromised with the censorship in order to attain the certificate.
A source close to the project reported an online portal, “Though Chhapaak releases on January 10, it was ready for a while and hence, the producers thought not to waste time and get the censor certificate soon. It would have also given them time to discuss with the CBFC if they had raised objection to any part of the film.”
It also added, “But to the pleasant surprise to the entire team, the CBFC members made it clear that there is no need for any kind of audio or visual cut in the film at all. Also, they felt that a film like this should be seen by all age groups. As a result, they immediately decided to give the film a ‘U’ rating.”
