We also have a special behind the scenes look in to the creation of this track from it’s inception!
Chhapaak is a film that looks at Acid violence through the lens of Acid survivor Laxmi Agarwal’s story. As Malti in the film, she comes from a humble, unprivileged background. Malti was attacked with acid on a street in New Delhi, in 2005. Her assailant was a man twice her age, whose advances Malti had clearly declined. Through Malti’s story, the film makes an attempt to understand the on-ground consequences of surviving an acid attack in India, the medico-legal social state of affairs that transpire after the acid has been hurled and the face is irreparably burnt.
Overall, Chhapaak is a story of triumph… of the unquashable human spirit, set to release on January 10th.
