Calling Chhapaak, the toughest film of her career, Deepika said, “Up until then I had felt that emotionally a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film was the most difficult because with him it’s not just about the character or the film but everything that goes into making it, all the hurdles, so by the end of it you’re exhausted for various reasons… On the last day, I asked Meghna to get made an extra piece of prosthetic which I needed. I went to a corner, threw alcohol on it and burnt it… I wanted everything to become ash. I stood there till that entire process was over and only then I felt a part of it had left my system, my body. But it’s not entirely possible as none of these characters leave your system. As of now, this has been the toughest film I’ve done.”
