Introducing the actress, Variety wrote, “Bollywood star Padukone produced and starred in Chhapaak, a social drama about the survivor of an acid attack that was released early last year. It was a changeup following from the 2018 period blockbuster Padmaavat, in which she plays Queen Padmavati.”
Talking to the publication about her journey, she said, “Fortunately, I’ve never had to make decisions based on the budget of a film or for various other reasons. It also depends on where I am emotionally in my life. A lot of my choices are dictated by that.”
