A Tryst with Basheer Shaikh – the acid attacker in Chhapaak

Many wondered as to who is the man who attacked Malti in the film Chhappak with acid on her face when the film was announced. The trailer came and went, the film has remained for the discussion for various reasons. Right from making headlines for seeing its leading lady Deepika Padukone who is also the producer of it visiting the JNU campus to support the injured students in the recent attack, to the Laxmi Agarwal lawyer threatening to sue the makers for not giving due credit to her for the film,

The fact is the film made too many headlines and it continues to make as it is all set to hit the screens tomorrow. However, amidst all this buzz, the question still remained active in the media as to who is the man who played the role of the culprit that made the acid attack survivor popular in the media and led her struggle to seek justice. Well, in the film, he is none other than the actor Basheer Khan.

He is named Rajesh in the film, while in reality, the man who attacked Laxmi was Nadeem Khan. Now, the big question is why makers had to take such liberty to change the character of the attacker in a big way changing his religion. However, when you dig deep you realize that the attacker is called Babby and his name is Basheer Shaikh and not Rajesh as said above. While the role of Babbu is played by Vishal Dahiya who is the boyfriend of teenage Malti played by Deepika. On the other side, the character of Rajesh has Ankit Bisht playing it.
