Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone made a bold move when she gave her nod for Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, based on real-life acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. However, things did not go as anticipated, when the movie faced backlash for DP’s JNU visit leading to several people boycotting the film.

Furthermore, the actress is being careful about getting into trouble again. Pradeep Sarkar along with Vasant Thakkar is presently working on the biopic of Bindoni Dasi, known as Nati Bindoni. For the unversed, she was a Bengali courtesan who later turned into a theatre actress, back from the 19th century. Her performances over Kolkata stage is worthy and the makers are up to. However, Deepika Padukone who was first approached for the project read the script but has now decided not to take the project.

According to a source close to Bollywood Hungama gave an insight as “The makers met Deepika a couple of months ago to give her a story narration. She liked the story and agreed to read the script. But then she got busy with Chhapaak promotions and kept them hanging in limbo saying that she would get back to them. Finally, her team reverted after more than a month saying that she couldn’t do the movie as she wanted to do light-hearted subjects and not heavy or serious movies, which would consume her emotionally.”

It is also being speculated that the project has been offered to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who has agreed to the take up the film already. The formal contract is yet to be done, and there’ll be an announcement soon post that.
