Director Meghna Gulzar started looking into Chhapaak after Ranveer Singh turned down her biopic on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.

Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh both hold top sport in the bigger box office collections. Deepika’s much talked-about role as acid-attack survivor Laxmi Aggarwal in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak happened because of Ranveer Singh. Director Meghna Gulzar was actually looking to make a male-centric film after Raazi. She was all set to do a biopic on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, with Ranveer in the lead. But according to a source, “Meghna had the project scripted and ready. She was keen on Ranveer Singh to play Manekshaw. They met, and Ranveer seemed super excited. But when it came to a narration, Ranveer seemed to have no time. Meghna simply decided to move to the next project, on acid attack victim Laxmi Aggarwal. That’s how Deepika Padukone came into the picture.”

The director intends to return to her Manekshaw biopic after Chhapaak. But now the role has been offered to Vicky Kaushal, who played Alia Bhatt’s Pakistani army-husband in Raazi.
