‘Chhapaak’ flopped because of Deepika Padukone going to JNU, director Meghna Gulzar admitted

Meghna Gulzar On Chhapaak: Deepika Padukone played the lead role in the film ‘Chhapaak’ based on the life of acid attack survivor Lakshmi Aggarwal. The film was released on 10 January 2020 and just three days before its release, Deepika Padukone went to Jawaharlal Nehru University where she was welcomed by the protesters. Deepika’s film, released three days after going to JNU, flopped at the box office.

Many people had attributed the flop of ‘Chhapaak’ to Deepika Padukone going to JNU. Now, after years, the film’s director Meghna Gulzar has also expressed her consent on this. During an interview given to Express Adda, Meghna said that the film has been affected due to Deepika going to JNU and there is no doubt about it.

‘Yes, it affected the film…’
Meghna said- ‘I am sure the answer is absolutely clear. Yes, of course, it affected the film. Because the conversation moved away from the acid violence that I wanted to show. So obviously this had an impact on the film. There is no doubt about it.’

What was the whole matter?
Let us tell you that during the 2020 JNU attack and the protests against CAA-NRC and three days before the release of ‘Chhapaak’, Deepika had participated in a protest in JNU. Her action made people stand against her. And the hashtags #BoycottChhapaak and #BlockDeepika started trending on social media. Perhaps this was the reason why his film ‘Chhapaak’ proved to be a flop at the box office.
