Deepika’s meltdown

During the shoot for the Meghna Gulzar directed film, Chhapaak, actor Deepika Padukone had a breakdown which triggered her depression. The talented actor has always been very vocal about her issues dealing with depression, and she got so indulged into the role for this film that she had to have her therapist on set. The director said, “That scene where she sees herself for the first time post the surgery, it hit her really hard. She did it in two takes and broke down. I just left everything and held on to her till she collected herself back.” She added that Deepika’s therapist was present throughout the production. Chhapaak is based on the life of an acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal. The film has been receiving a lot of positive reviews.
