SC dismisses plea against release of 'Padmavati' outside India

SC dismisses plea against release of 'Padmavati' outside India

"When the matter is pending before the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for grant of certificate, nobody holding a responsible position should comment as it would amount to violation of the principle of the rule of law".

A still from Padmavati.

The Supreme Court rejected a petition on Tuesday asking a stay on the United Kingdom release of Padmavati, and also took a strong stand against people holding public offices, including ministers and chief ministers of various states for making unnecessary comments.

Grave damage would be done to social harmony if the movie is allowed to be released outside India, the petition argued. "It'll prejudice minds of board members while taking a decision", Indian Express quoted the court as saying. But, Bollywood and television fraternity stand firmly in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed "Padmavati".

The bench which also comprised Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud termed Sharma's plea as "misconceived", but did not impose cost on the lawyer, considering he has been a practising lawyer of the apex court, the report added.

At least five chief ministers from BJP-ruled states have spoken out against the yet-to-be-released movie, claiming that it could "hurt sentiments" of the Rajput community and create a law and order problem.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming historical drama Padmavati is facing a lot of issues.

Padmavati has been banned by four states, Uttar Pradesh, Madhay Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan. The release date of the film has also been postponed due to which Kapil's Firangi will now hit the screens on December 1.
