Deepika Padukone is all set to bring us a power packed performance with her film Chhapaak, and with that she is also set to debut as a producer for the film, which is super cool and a great step in the positive direction.

Now, of course she was bound to get a lot of questions about how it was to don the producer’s hat for the first time. And while that’s a question that’s expected, she was recently asked at a song launch about her husband Ranveer Singh‘s investment in the film that she was quick to rubbish.

At the event, a reporter quizzed Vikrant Massey about how Ranveer reacted to his role in the film, given he has also invested in the project. Deepika was quick to intervene here and clarified that it is her money and her project as a producer.

She said:

Excuse me? Who told you this? This is my own hard-earned money. It’s my hard work.

That it sure is! More power to you, Deepika! We love you too, Ranveer.

Chhapaak, directed by Meghna Gulzar is a story about an acid attack survivor and is loosely based on the life of Laxmi Agarwal. The movie is all set to release on the 10th of January.
