Lawyer Aparna Bhat has filed contempt petition in Delhi High Court against makers of the film Chhapaak and actress Deepika Padukone for not giving due credit to her in spite of the court order.

Aparna Bhat represented Laxmi, the acid attack survivor on whose life the movie Chhapaak is based.

Speaking to IANS over phone, Aparna Bhat said, "I have filed this petition as the makers have not included the credits in the copy of the film which is being screened internationally."

However, she said that due credits were given to her in the movie which is screening in India.
