Nature has implanted chirality in many organic molecules of living organisms that have made man think about exploiting this handedness property of the objects and coming up with exciting applications through synthetic chiral structures. In this connection, several chiral metasurface designs have been proposed with interesting optoelectronic applications, such as chiral sensing of a molecule at the zeptomole level, circularly polarized luminescence, circular dichroism, chiro-spintronics, and nonlinear optics. The perovskites' unique chirality features have led to the emerging perovskite optoelectronic area. In this regard, exploiting the novel chiral perovskite materials for optoelectronic functionalities becomes vitally important. This area of research is at a pre-mature stage. The present issues associated with perovskite semiconductors are toxicity, reproducibility, and instability. However, the expertise from physics, chemistry, and device engineering from the perovskite research community has been focusing on the basic material properties, fabrication, and characterization methods while simultaneously mitigating the present issues to get to successful commercialization. Future research opportunities related to chiral perovskite nanocrystals are versatile and intend to rationalize the exceptional potential of these low-cost materials for complicated optoelectronics applications.
