Should Men who spend considerable time in custody during trial but are honorably acquitted of a Rape charge be called Rape Case Survivors? ~ Additional Sessions Judge Nivedita Anil Sharma, June 2015


My name is Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj, an Independent Journalist and a Documentary Filmmaker. I am currently working on my second feature documentary film called "India's Sons - Tale of False Rape Case Survivors." It's a film that traces journey, ordeals and escapes of Innocent men who were falsely accused of a rape charge in India. The documentary aims to start a dialogue over misuse of rape laws and reveal the unsaid truth behind India's tag of a rape capital.

India's Sons - Tale of false rape case survivors, is a very important documentary detailing the trauma that a man and his family faces if he is falsely accused of rape, discussing the changes in laws and its repercussions post 2012 and the nexus that's slowly and steadily building up in the system to unabashedly exploit these stringent provisions meant to protect genuine victims. A false rape charge is the most devastating thing that can happen to an innocent person and there are thousands of such cases that are happening every year in India. The prevailing situation has made several judges pass stern judgments criticizing this injustice and some have gone on record to say that there are no laws to protect the honor and dignity of a man.

The film is currently under production. It's Directed by me, Co-Directed by Neeraj Kumar and produced by Sahodar Trust, an NGO for men run by Mr. Shonee Kapoor, a lawyer and an Entrepreneur ( This crowd fund will help us with post production, marketing, screenings and distribution of the film and also take it to nook and corners of the world.
