Deepika Padukone’s film Chhapaak which is a day away to hit the theatres held a premiere last night for all the Bollywood stars. It was a star-studded affair where we saw Riteish Deshmukh with wife Genelia D’Souza, Javed Akhtar, Rekha, among others making their way in for the special screening.
As soon as the screening ended several celebs took to their Twitter handle to shower their praises. Celebs are in awe of the team including Deepika, Vikrant Massey for the wonderful performance and thanked Meghna Gulzar for picking up such a subject for the film. Jackky Bhagnani wrote, “#Chhapaak is not just a film, but a reality! A Story of a heinous crime, struggle & victory of a brave soul. Hats off @deepikapadukone for such a brilliant performance, huge respect! @masseysahib you were amazing. @meghnagulzar take a bow for making this 🙌🏻”
