The first song has premiered from the highly awaited new film “Chhapaak” which will bring superstar Deepika Padukone back to the big screen in 2020 when it releases in theaters across North America on January 10th.
Watch the new video for the song ‘Nok Jhok’ here:
Malti (Deepika Padukone) was attacked with acid on a street in New Delhi, in 2005. Through her 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 transpires after the acid has been hurled and the face is irreparably burnt.
Deepika Padukone shared the first song from “Chhapaak” and it’s a beautiful track. The movie is based on the life and experiences of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who is now a TV show host and a campaigner with Stop Acid Attacks. Vikrant Massey has been cast in the role of Laxmi’s partner Alok Dixit, who is a journalist turned social activist, who fell in love with Laxmi during her fight for justice. Massey’s character is named Amol in “Chhapaak” and ‘Nok Jhok’ tracks Malti and Amol’s adorable journey as they gradually grow fond of each other.
‘Nok Jhok’ begins with a phone call from Malti that takes Amol by surprise and then he becomes Malti’s constant companion and biggest support in her battle for justice. The song shows Malti and Amol cherishing little moments during they visit courts and government offices.
The song has been sung by Siddharth Mahadevan and music is by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. The lyrics for the song have been written by Gulzar.
