SC Dismisses Plea Against 'Padmavati', Rebukes CMs for Speaking Against Film

29 November 2017

A still from Padmavati.

"All concerned persons holding responsible posts must be guided by rule of law and should not venture out to pass comment on film which has not been cleared by CBFC".

The set of the movie was vandalised twice - in Jaipur and Kolhapur - and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali was roughed up by members of Karni Sena during the Jaipur schedule of the film earlier this year.

On Tuesday, the supreme court has dismissed a fresh plea which was related to the release of the movie titled "Padmavati" outside India.

Lawyer ML Sharma had also sought a direction to the CBI to register a case against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and others for various offences including defamation and violation of the Cinematography Act.

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

Several state governments, including Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, have said they will not allow the release of the film Pdmavati as of now.

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

According to the latest reports, the studio Viacom 18 has made a decision to release the film on Republic Day weekend keeping the whole holiday weekend in mind.

Padukone swept aside all controversies connected with the film and even threw a lavish party for her friends in Bollywood prior to the film's release, which has since been postponed following simmering protests by hardliners.
