Speaking About Chhapaak
Deepika was recently quoted as saying by Pinkvilla, "It's an important story to be told. Period. I don't think it has anything to do with male or female, it's about the human spirit. It's about bravery and triumph. Hopefully, we'll be able to bring about a social change."

"The only reason we are able to tell this story of brave souls like Laxmi (Agarwal), who have had the courage to turn their life around and make it something positive. There's so much more than just the incident itself."
