Kangana Ranaut put out a video thanking director Meghna Gulzar and Deepika Padukone for making a film like Chhapaak. She added that the trailer of the Deepika-starrer reminded her of her sister Rangoli Chandel's similar experience and that the film's spirit is a slap on those who commit acid attacks.
In the video, Kangana, speaking in Hindi, said, "I recently saw the trailer of Chhapaak and after watching I remembered the acid attack incident that took place with my sister Rangoli. The kind of courage my sister showed during and after the attack gave me strength and inspires me to face every challenge that comes my way. Her smile gives me the courage to take panga with every sadness."
She added, "Today, me and my family thank Meghna Gulzar and Deepika for making a film on this. For all those who are dealing with similar ordeal will gain strength, even those who have given up. This film is a slap on those who have committed this crime."
"I hope this year there will be a panga on the sale of acid so that this country becomes acid attack free. I wish the team of Chhapaak good luck," she concluded.
Rangoli captioned the clip: "The pain still lingers. Our family thanks Team Chhapaak for a story that needs to be told!"
Chhapaak is based on the life of Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor. The film is slated for release this Friday.
Meanwhile, Kangana is currently prepping for the release of her upcoming film, Panga, which is scheduled for release on January 24. Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film, also starring Richa Chadha, Jassie Gill, and Neena Gupta, revolves around a mother (Kangana) who is also a kabbadi player.
