Padukone, who will portray the role of Agarwal, can be seen in the avatar on the poster and fans are more excited than ever. ”A character that will stay with me forever…” the star’s Instagram caption began. Padukone also revealed that the shooting for Chhapaak begins today and it will be releasing in January next year.

All the best queen, all our wishes are with you! This will be another milestone. Can’t wait to witness this magic onscreen,” wrote a user. Another stated, “This is life altering. Can’t wait to see what nuances you bring to Malti (Deepika’s name in Chhapaak).”

One user wrote, “This is beyond words. I’ll look forward to watch this movie. More power to you” and “All the very best to you and the team. I have no doubt that you will sweep all the awards, including the National Award InshAllah.”

    Nice to see her gradually moving to character roles . She has realised pretty heroine roles are not life lasting . Recommend
