MUMBAI: Rarely we see the 'Panga' queen Kangana Ranaut complimenting her contemporary actors, especially the A-listers. But this time, she praised Deepika Padukone and the team of 'Chhapaak' for telling the struggles of acid-attack survivors and said that the trailer reminded her of sister Rangoli Chandel's adversities when she went through the same.
A video of the 'Tanu Weds Manu' actress went viral where she revealed that she recently saw the trailer of 'Chhapaak' which reminded her of the whole incident when Rangoli faced an acid attack and went through her toughest time. The few minutes trailer refreshed all the haunting memories of that time in Kangana's mind.
Speaking of how Rangoli's courage inspires her to fight against all odds, Kangana said,
"Apne aur apne parivar ki khatir meri behen Rangoli ki himmat mujhe har mushkil se panga lene ke liye prerit karti hai. Uski muskurahat hi mujhe har dard se panga lene ki wajah deti hai. Aaj mai aur mera parivar Deepika Padukone aur Meghna Gulzar ko dhanyawad karta hai ki unhone is mudde par film banai. Taki isase joojh rahe un jaanbaaz logo ko himmat mile jo apni zindagi se haar maan baithe hain. Is film se un darindo ke muh par tamacha pada hai. Jo apni harkat me to kamyaab ho gae lekin apne iraado me nahi. Jis chehre ko bigaad kar unhone kisi ki himmat ko tod diya tha, aaj is film se wo har chehra khil udhega. Aur jeet jaegi unki jazbo ki khoobsoorti.Asha karti hu is nav warsh mein tezaab ki bikri par panga ho,taaki ye desh acid attack free ho sake. Aur ant me, team Chhapaak ko meri ore se bahut bahut shubhkaamnaayein (Rangoli’s courage for herself and her family always gives me the courage to fight all odds and her smile is the reason I can take upon everyone and every situation. My entire family thanks Deepika and Meghna Gulzar for making a film on the subject. The courageous people fighting acid attacks will find strength with the film and it is also a tight slap on the face of those who succeeded in their deeds but not intentions - they managed to attack the face but the courage and determination remains steady and strong. I hope the new year will bring a fight against the sale of acid and our country will be free from acid attacks. Finally, I want to wish my best for Chhapaak and the film’s team)."
Rangoli shared the video and wrote that the pain of that dreadful incident still lingers in her.
'Chhapaak' will be releasing on 10th January. Kangana, on the other hand, will be next seen in 'Panga' that deals with a woman going against the orthodox society. The Ashwini Iyer directorial will be releasing on 24th January.
