Harry Potter film star, Jason Isaac, the man behind the character of Lucius Malfoy travels to India and visits Sheroes Hangout, a restaurant located near Taj Mahal that is run by acid attack survivors.
Isaac said via Twitter on Oct. 18, “India stuns me witless. Yesterday we ate here. It’s run by magnificent acid attack survivors.”

Acts of acid attacking are classified as violent and typically premeditated.
According to the Acid Survivors Foundation of India (ASFI), between 2011 and 2015 there have been over 800 acid attacks throughout the developing country.
The waitresses at the eatery have all lived through devastating assaults by men who threw acid in their face, the official Sheroes Hangout website said.
Also adding that, “Sheroes Hangout is designed to give acid attack survivors the confidence to show their faces in public after being disfigured.”
The best part of all of this, is that when the actor first arrived via auto-Rickshaw with his wife and two daughters, he went unrecognized. Then the family sat down and ordered up an all vegetarian meal and talked with the staff, before the 53-year-old fella was recognized as the man behind the evil Lucius Malfoy character in the Harry Potter film series.
Once he was identified, he graciously took pictures and promised to travel back to Sheroes Hangout with Harry Potter books and so he did, according to the Times of India.
The married father of two, gave the novels to the restaurant managers.
