Chhapaak makers to acknowledge lawyer of acid attack survivor Laxmi on Court's direction

Advocate Aparna Bhat filed an application saying that despite representing Laxmi Agarwal in courts for several years and helping filmmakers in the creation of the movie, she has been devoid of credit to the work. 

A Delhi Court on Thursday directed the makers of Deepika Padukone starer feature film Chhapaak to give credit to acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal's lawyer in the film.

Additional Civil Judge Pankaj Sharma said it was necessary that advocate Aparna Bhat’s contribution is acknowledged.

“This Court is of the considered view that facts are indicative that the plea of the plaintiff for interim injunction is well-founded and it is necessary that her contribution be acknowledged by providing on the slide on the actual footage and the images, the line ‘Aparna Bhat continues to fight the cases of sexual and physical violence against women’ during the screening of the film.

“The said line on screen maybe with a rider that the same is with the court order,” the judge said.

She said the filmmakers took her help in the entire process of writing and shooting the movie, but did not give the credit.
