Before making her Bollywood debut in Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om opposite Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone first appeared on screen in Himesh Reshammiya's Naam Hai Tera music video. Years later, the dimpled actress visited the sets of a television show that features Himesh as a judge to promote her film Chhapaak's. It was time for Deepika to walk down memory lane with Himesh on the show.
Later, Himesh Reshammiya took to his Instagram page to share a picture from the sets where he is seen posing with the stunning actress. He also mentioned that Deepika Padukone could surely take home the National Film Award for her performance in Chhapaak.

His caption for the photo read, "It was fun to perform naam hai tera again with Deepika , she is such an incredible talent , so proud of her , chhapaak is mindblowing , what a performer she is , looking forward to the film, lots of love."
Speaking about Chhapaak, the film directed by Meghna Gulzar, has Deepika Padukone essaying the role of an acid-attack survivor named Malti. The film also stars Vikrant Massey as her love interest. Chhapaak recently received a 'U' certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with no cuts.
