The courtroom drama ‘Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai,’ featuring acclaimed actor Manoj Bajpayee, has received highly positive reviews. The film is inspired by true events. The story revolves around a self-styled godman who was accused of raping multiple women and teenagers. Its gripping narrative has generated significant buzz and captivated audiences.
Who Is Lawyer Poonam Chand Solanki?
The movie is based on true events, and Bajpayee’s character is inspired by advocate Poonam Chand Solanki of Jodhpur. In 2018, advocate Solanki successfully prosecuted the famed godman Asaram Bapu in a rape case filed by a 16-year-old. Solanki remarked,
“I have taken the legal recourse in this matter. How can it be claimed that the movie is inspired by real-life events involving me when no NOC was collected from me, nor the script was approved by me? Those who signed an agreement with me sold the rights without informing me.”
The lawyer shared that a file had been submitted against the movie’s director. Also, he issued notices to the producers and others. Solanki also questioned how the lawyer was portrayed in the film as a “hero.” He says he is not a hero and is simply following his lawyer’s duties.
Details About The Case In The Movie
Solanki’s journey is as essential as it appears in the film to be encouraging and entertaining. Getting justice from the court is not an easy task. However, in this case, he was fighting against the most powerful men. They had a lot of witnesses who accused the man of raping multiple women and girls at his ashram. All of this while Solanki was regularly threatened with death notes and people offering him millions of dollars to stop. Not to forget that 9 important prosecution witnesses were attacked throughout the trial. Furthermore, three were killed, and one went missing after being stabbed outside the court. Yet, Solanki chose not to give up and did not feel threatened by the judges, lawyers, investigators, and victims.
