"This court is of the considered view that facts are indicative that the pique of the plaintiff for interim injunction is well founded and it is necessary that her contribution be acknowledged by providing the actual footage and the images."

The court also asked the makers to include the line "Aparna Bhatt continues to fight the cases of sexual and physical violence against women" during the screening of the film.

"The said line on screen may be with a rider that the same is with the court order," the judge said.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The movie stars Deepika Padukone, Vikrant Massey and is slated to release on January 9, 2020.
