Famed Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan, who has a role in Baz Luhrman’s latest epic The Great Gatsby, was in town to open a new solicitors branch.
The veteran screen star — who is a friend of the firms’ owners — cut the ribbon to the new Caveat Solicitors branch in Ripple Road, Barking, on May 13.
The law firm, which was founded by Rehana Choudhry, has been committed to helping victims of domestic violence and has also been providing pro bono services to local charities and organisations in other parts of London.
That is a practice Rehnana is keen to see continued in Barking and Dagenham.
Caveat Solicitors opened in 2011, and has offices in Shepherds Bush, Harrow, Hounslow and now Barking.
