The Lawyer ‘Aparna Bhat’ represented the acid attack survivor in Patiala house court in her criminal trial. But now the lawyer blames film makers for not mentioning her name or giving any credit to her in the film.
Movie Chhappaak is based on Laxmi’s life and actress Deepika Padukone played the character of laxmi in the film. Later ‘Aparna bhat’ the real life lawyer of laxmi posted on facebook that she is going to take makers of Chhapaak to court because of not giving her proper credit in the movie.
Aparna wrote on facebook: “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.”
In another post she said: “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.”
