Supreme Court dismisses plea against release of 'Padmavati' outside India

SC Dismisses Lawyer's Plea Requesting Stay on Release Says Persons Holding Responsible Posts Shouldn't Comment

The bench which also comprised of Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud termed as "misconceived", the prayers sought by Sharma in his fresh petition and said that the court can not pre-judge a movie which is yet to be certified by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

Taking exception to people holding official positions making adverse comments about the film "Padmavati", a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud said: "We are governed by the rule of law. That will prejudice the decision of CBFC", the Supreme Court said.

Manohar Lal Sharma, who was previously involved in the Nirbhaya case, and had defended the accused men, had also filed a petition seeking actions to be taken against the director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

The release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial film Padmavati has become trouble for the makers of the film, initially, the film was supposed to release on 1st December 2017 but now it has been postponed for the next year 2018.

The irked did not impose Mr. Sharma by keeping in view the fact that has been practicing by the lawyer of the apex court.

While some Hindu outfits had called for a ban on Padmavati, leaders of Karni Sena gave calls to behead Padukone for acting in the film.




His Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath had held the movie director responsible for hurting the sentiments of the Rajput community, while Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had sought edits in the film to remove "objectionable sequences".

The chief ministers of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh have said they will not allow the movie to release even if it is cleared by the censor board.

Upcoming film, Padmavati has been receiving support from the film fraternity despite protests from various religious groups.

The protestors have been alleging that Bhansali would portray the character of Rani Padmavati in a bad light.

In the wake of such protests and controversies, the release date of Padmavati has been delayed.
