Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone is busy with promotions of her upcoming emotional-drama, Chhapaak, the movie has been in the headlines for the longest and for negative reasons, mostly. After the release of the movie trailer, Deepika Padukone was appreciated for her tear-jerking performance but soon after the movie got in trouble for the plot.

Earlier, Chhapaak was compared to Priyanka Singh directorial Acid which revolves around the same topic and post that filmmaker Rakesh Bharti accused the makers of Chhapaak of stealing his script and filed a lawsuit. While the makers were trying to get out of the legal trouble, the movie has found itself in another controversy related to its plotline.

For the unversed, Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak deals with the life struggles of an acid attack survivor and the story is inspired by the real-life of Laxmi Aggarwal, who survived an acid attack on herself. Now, the lawyer of Laxmi Aggarwal, Aparna Bhat, has expressed her disappointment in the makers of the movie and took to her social media handle to announce that she will be taking legal action against them.

“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,” the post reads. Another post from the lawyer read, “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.”

Talking about the movie, starring Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey in the prominent characters, the Meghna Gulzar directorial Chhapaak is slated to release on 10th January.
