After Rangoli Chandel took to her social media to shower praises on the Chhapaak trailer, acid attack survivor and British activist Katie Piper too posted a touching note on her Twitter.
"Chhapaak @deepikapadukone new movie Watching this trailer took my breath away. I had to watch 3/4 times for it all to sink in. This film explores what it really means to survive an acid attack in India. Based on true events the film follows Malti’s traumatic medical journey and her fight for justice in a legal battle against her attacker, a man who couldn't cope with her rejecting his advances. Malti’s face is permanently scarred but not her spirit, that is unbreakable. An untold story of trauma and triumph," she posted on Twitter.
To that, Deepika tweeted back, "Thank You so much for your shout out Katie and I look forward to meeting you sometime soon (sic).“
