Deepika Padukone is all set to bring her most awaited film Chhapaak. Ever since the film was announced it is making headlines for both good and bad reasons. Now according to the information, the film has dropped into another controversy after Laxmi Agarwal’s lawyer, Aparna Bhat has decided to take legal action against the makers for omitting to mention her name in the film.
The film is based on the true story of an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The lawyer took her social media handle to and wrote that she is deeply disturbed by the fact Laxmi has not been given any credit in ‘Chhapaak’.
Aparna Bhat also alleged that she will be taking legal action to protect her identity and preserve her integrity.
She also mentioned that although ‘she cannot match the power of producer Deepika but won’t keep silent about it’.
She wrote, “Have never been the one to demand attention to my work. Deeply disturbed by the turn of events post watching Chhapaak. Compelled to take legal action to protect my identity and preserve my integrity. I represented Lakshmi in her criminal trial in Patiala House Courts… tomorrow someone will represent me in my cause…Ironies of life.” She further wrote to take legal action against Deepika and makers and wrote, “I thank all my friends who endorsed my contribution and challenged team Chhapaak in failing to say even “Thank you!!”. I cannot match the powers of these mighty producers of Bollywood but keeping quiet will further endorse injustice. I have decided to take my cause to the next level. Ready to face the consequences.”
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, ‘Chhapaak’ stars Deepika and Vikrant Massey in the lead roles.
The film will hit the theatres tomorrow on January 10, 2020.
