A Delhi court on Thursday ordered the makers of the Deepika Padukone-starrer Chhapaak to include the lawyer of acid attack survivor and activist Laxmi Agarwal in the film's credits, Bar and Bench reported.

The culprit who throws acid on the face of protagonist Malti, played by Deepika Padukone, in "Chhapaak", is called Basheer in the film, not Rajesh. Advocate Aparna Bhat, who represented Agarwal in court, has expressed her disappointment with the movie in a Facebook post.

The Patiala House Court in Delhi, after hearing lawyer Aparna Bhat's plea, has today ordered Chhapaak director Meghna Gulzaar to give due credit to the lawyer in the movie. Post the overwhelming support, she put out another post which read, "I thank all my friends who endorsed my contribution and challenged team Chhapaak in failing to say even 'Thank you!'". Deeply disturbed by the turn of events post watching Chhapaak. I have made a decision to take my cause to the next level. 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", Bhat wrote on her Facebook post.

As soon as she reached the venue, her pictures went viral on social media and several people lauded her for voicing her opinion.

"This is the second controversy that has erupted about aChhapaak" within the span of a single day. In the real incident on which "Chhapaak" is based, the man who committed the crime is Nadeem Khan while, the rumours claimed, the makers of the film have changed his name to Rajesh.

After her JNU visit, many appreciated her "silent solidarity", but some others criticised her for "supporting Leftists", saying it was a promotional stunt ahead of her film's release.
