ChhapaakBHOPAL: Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak has been declared tax-free in Madhya Pradesh, the official Twitter handle of state Chief Minister Kamal Nath informed the public.
Inspired from the life of activist Laxmi Agarwal, Chhapaak chronicles the journey of acid-attack survivor Malti (Deepika Padukone) as she comes to terms with her trauma, and subsequently fights against acid violence. Chhapaak hits the theatres on January 10 and also stars Vikrant Massey in a pivotal role.
“I declare Deepika Padukone-starrer ‘Chhapaak’, the film based on acid attack survivors and set for release on January 10, as tax free in Madhya Pradesh,” Nath tweeted.
“The movie gives a positive message to society about the women who are acid attack survivors, by portraying their story of pain, confidence, struggle, hope and passion, and to bringing about a change in the society’s thinking in such cases,” he said in another tweet.
Padukone visited the JNU campus in Delhi on Tuesday to express solidarity with students who were attacked by a mob, but did not address the gathering.After her JNU visit, many appreciated her “silent solidarity”, but some others criticised her for “supporting Leftists”, saying it was a promotional stunt ahead of her film’s release.
