Deepika Padukone's latest release Chhapaak, based on the life of an acid attack survivor couldn't create waves at the box office. The film also suffered from trolls who targeted the movie as Deepika visited Jawaharlal Nehru University on January 7 to stand in solidarity with the students after attacks on the campus. However, Deepika remains unfazed by these trolls and also by the IMDb rating of the film which also took a hit after her visit to JNU. 

In a video that is going viral on Twitter, Deepika can be seen giving out a clear message to her critics saying, "Unhone meri IMDb rating badli hai, mera mann nahi (They have changed my IMDb rating, not my heart)". The video is from earlier in the month. 

Chhapaak was widely appreciated by critics and many lauded the Padmaavat actress for choosing such a socially relevant subject, however, the film's page on the review aggregator website was reviewed badly by several accounts which brought down the film's rating to 4.6 stars. The other Bollywood film that released along with Chhapaak was Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior which remains unstoppable at the box office. 

However, in a recent report trade analyst Girish Johar had said Chhapaak managed to find its target audience and is not a losing venture. "Yes from all the rights, it seems that Chhapaak is not a losing venture. Also, since Deepika herself produced the film, her acting fee charged for this film will not be considered. This, I feel, is one of those passion projects that actors like to do. I believe that the kind of film it is or the kind of story it is, it appeals to a very limited audience and that audience watched the film. It is not an entertaining film. It has been seen by those for whom it was made and they have also responded to the film."
