Who is Chhapaak Girl Laxmi Agrawal?
Chhapaak is based on the life and struggles of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. When Laxmi was in school, a 35-year-old man threw acid on her. She is the founder of Stop Sale Acid. Laxmi started this campaign with #StopSaleAcid which got support from the whole country. She received the International Women Empowerment Award 2019 for her Stop Sale Acid campaign. Laxmi got International women of courage- 2014 by Michelle Obama.
When Meghana Gulzar was asked about casting Deepika Padukone in the role, she replied, “You won’t be seeing Deepika, you know. You will be seeing a disfigured Deepika. There is an uncanny similarity between the survivor and Deepika.”
“The film will demonstrate how attacks and violence can wreck one’s life,” Meghana added.
Deepika is also co-producing film Chhapaak. Deepika said, “When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it’s not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer.”
This film stars Vikrant Massey as Deepika’s partner. She also shared a picture of the reading session of the script reading before sharing the first look of the movie.
Speaking of upcoming movies, it is said that Deepika will be seen in Sahil Ludhiavani’s biopic.
Deepika recently received the Zee Cine Award for the majestic role in movie Padmavaat. Filmfare nominated Deepika under best female actor category. Alia Bhatt won it for the movie Raazi.
Uddhav Thackeray thanks Shah Rukh khan for contributing to Covid-19 relief fund.
Maharashtra CM said thanks to Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan for his generous donations to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-Cares) fund and Maharashtra chief minister’s relief fund, among others, to accelerate the efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic. In Reply Shah Rukh said that he should not be thanked for making this contribution.
ह्या लढाईत आपण सगळे एकत्र आहोत कारण थेंबे थेंबे तळे साचे. सर्वांनी थोडे थोडे प्रयत्न केले तर एक मदतीचा महासागर तयार होईल..
आपल्या मार्गदर्शनासाठी धन्यवाद!
We are all a family sir….and we need to be together to keep each other healthy. Thank you. https://t.co/Yi2iFgktPZ
— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 3, 2020
Shah Rukh replied to Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, who thanked him and his wife Gauri Khan on Twitter, “We are all a family sir…and we need to be together to keep each other healthy. Thank you. He also wrote in Marathi that everyone is together in this battle and if all chipped in their own little way, an ocean of help will be formed”.
Maharashtra environment and tourism minister Aaditya Thackeray also thanked Shah Rukh for donating towards coronavirus relief. For that he replied “We don’t ever have to thank each other during times like these. We r a family. Grateful you are working so hard for Maharashtra and whenever you get alone time…do write a poem or two. Love to you,” .
Roti Bank Foundation, which is feeding the underprivileged and daily wage workers in partnership with Shah Rukh’s non-profit organisation Meer Foundation, also thanked him. “You are all doing a great service. We at @MeerFoundation are glad we could be of assistance,” was the actor’s response.
On Thursday, Shah Rukh announced that his companies – Kolkata Knight Riders, Red Chillies Entertainment, Meer Foundation and Red Chillies VFX – were contributing to a number of relief funds to help those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
He said in a statement “At a time when the human race is facing an immense crisis, there can only be one true response: the expression of humanity itself. This is a moment for all of us to come together in a collective effort to make each other kinder, stronger and braver to face the days ahead. This crisis is not going to pass in a hurry, it will take its time and its toll on all of us. It will also show us that there isn’t really a choice between looking out for ourselves and looking out for one another. There’s nothing more obvious in the spread of this pandemic, than the fact that each one of us is inextricably connected to each other, without any distinction. So, while we do whatever we can to support each other in our own small ways, the compassion we show to those who are likely to face the most brutal brunt of both, the pandemic and its economic consequences, will define us as a generation and as a nation”.
Biggest rise in cases 40% cases linked to Nizamuddin
India today braced for the health impact of a steep rise in new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours. Of the 386 fresh cases reported across the country since Tuesday, 154 (40 per cent) had attended the religious congregation that the Muslim missionary group, Tablighi Jamaat, had organised at Nizamuddin here.
The Ministry of Health said “the cases had risen from 1,251 at 4 pm on Tuesday to 1,637 at 4 pm today . This was the highest one-day rise in the tally in a 24-hour bracket since the reporting of the first case on January 30”.
Of the 154 confirmed cases involving Nizamuddin event attendees, the highest – 65 are from Tamil Nadu followed by 23 from Jammu and Kashmir, 20 from Telangana, 18 from Delhi, 17 from Andhra Pradesh, nine from Andaman and Nicobar Islands and two from Puducherry.
Experts said that “they were monitoring if the Nizamuddin cluster had the potential to impact India’s disease curve that was stable until Sunday at around 1,000 cases before the cases spiked on Tuesday”.
All states that have reported cases related to the Tablighi event have been notified to undertake intensive drives to trace the contacts of patients, test them, quarantine or isolate them depending on their health risk profile. Additional sample testing is going on in other states. The one-day increase of 386 does not represent a national trend. We all know failure anywhere will lead to such a rise in cases.
The government appeals to all to avoid religious gatherings and follow directions on social distancing,” Lav Agarwal, spokesperson, Health Ministry, said”Maharashtra, HP, UP and Assam are testing samples from people with Nizamuddin travel history”.
The Centre didn’t rule out further rise in the cases due to the Nizamuddin cluster that has left worried surveillance teams. However, the government didn’t comment on whether the country risked entering the community transmission stage due to the cluster.
Meanwhile, the police today evacuated all 2,361 residents at Tablighi Jamaat headquarters here. Of these, 1,800 were quarantined at nine facilities and 617 taken to hospitals for testing.
In a video conference with state chief secretaries and DGPs, Cabinet Secretary Rajeev Gauba asked them to monitor any potential ramifications of the new disease clusters and urged them to ensure migrant welfare at relief camps.
250 Indians stuck in Iran test positive
On Wednesday The Centre told to the Supreme Court that “Around 250 of the 850 Indian Shia pilgrims in Iran have tested positive for Covid-19 and they were receiving medical treatment there”.
During a hearing conducted via video-conferencing, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told a Bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud that the remaining pilgrims had already been flown back to India from Qom, Iran.
The Bench said “the Indian embassy in Iran should constantly monitor the situation to look into the possibility of bringing them back as and when possible”.
While hearing a petition filed by Mustafa MH, a resident of Drass in Kargil, Ladakh, on the issue, the court noted that the government was taking the matter seriously even as senior advocate Sanjay Hegde, representing the petitioner, insisted that the 250 Covid positive Indians could not be left at the mercy of the Iranian authorities.
Tushar Mehta said “all International flights had been cancelled and authorities were waiting for a decision of the Ministry of External Affairs”.
He said “Our embassy at Iran is in touch with the 250 people stranded there. They will be brought back, whenever there is a possibility,”. He also pointed out that many people earlier flown back and sent to Leh had developed Covid symptoms.
Noting that the matter should be left to the government now, the Bench said the” petitioner could raise the issue again, if needed”. The Bench, however, didn’t pass any directions regarding the stranded Indians at this juncture.
Reply sought on safety gear for health staff The SC has asked “the Centre to respond to a PIL, which has sought from the authorities to ensure availability of WHO-approved appropriate personal protective equipment for doctors, nurses, ward boys and other medical and paramedical professionals. Without issuing a formal notice, a Bench asked the Centre to respond to the petition filed by a Nagpur-based doctor”.
