Inspired from the life of activist Laxmi Agarwal, Chhapaak chronicles the journey of acid-attack survivor Malti (Deepika Padukone) as she comes to terms with her trauma, and subsequently fights against acid violence. Chhapaak hits the theaters on January 10 and also stars Vikrant Massey in a pivotal role
Earlier writer Rakesh Bharti had filed a suit in the HC claiming that he had originally penned a story on the life of an acid attack survivor. Bharti in his suit sought for his name to be included in the credits as one of the creative writers and also sought a stay on January 10, 2020, release of the movie. In reply, Meghna Gulzar filed an affidavit stating that the suit filed by Bharti is 'wholly misconceived, frivolous, legally untenable and unmeritorious.' After hearing brief arguments on the interim relief sought by Bharti, Justice S C Gupte made prima facie observations that copyright cannot be claimed over such stories. The suit will be going for further hearing after six weeks when the movie was released and both the scripts were compared by Bharati’s counsels.
Deepika’s recent JNU visit in the wake of attacks on student stirred fresh controversy about her political stand. BoycottChhapaak started trending on social media. It was also alleged by a section of netizens that the filmmakers have changed the name of the attacker of Laxmi Agarwal taking a bias on his religion.
The movie was premiered for select audience and is receiving positive reviews from critics and celebs. The movie is seen as Deepika’s career’s best performance very much deserving of a national award. Critics have also called the screenplay empowering!
