Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film Chhapaak has been hitting the headlines once again as the film has found itself in troubled waters.
According to reports, Advocate Aparna Bhat, who represented acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal in court, is upset with the Deepika Padukone-starrer Chhapaak and has threatened to take legal action against the makers of the film.
Aparna has alleged that the filmmakers haven’t given her due credit in the movie and that she is “deeply disturbed post watching the film.”

Aprna took to her Facebook 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.”
She further 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 Laxmi in her criminal trial in Patiala House Courts… tomorrow someone will represent me in my cause… Ironies of life.”
Recently, Deepika made a surprise visit to the Jawaharlal Nehru University to express solidarity with the students who had been attacked. Ever since then, she has been receiving both appreciations from all quarters as well as criticism from other section of people.
Chhapaak will hit the theatres tomorrow on January 10, 2020.
