Supreme Court to hear plea against Padmavati today

Supreme Court to hear plea against Padmavati today

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, and justices A M Khanvilkar and D Y Chandrachud stated, "When the matter is pending the consideration of the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification), how can persons holding public offices comment on whether CBFC should issue certificate or not?"

The apex court also advised people holding public offices not to issue any such statement as these acts can influence the decision of Censor Board.

Even though, the British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC) has cleared "Padmavati" for release in the United Kingdom on December 1, sources close to the filmmakers have said that there are no plans to release the film overseas.

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.

Comedian Kapil Sharma, too, has his share of opinion regarding the fire and fury surrounding the most controversial film of the year "Padmavati".




The irked bench, however, did not impose cost on Sharma keeping in view the fact that he has been a practising lawyer of the apex court. The story revolves around the queen Padmini of Chittore, her husband Rawal Ratan Singh and the adversities they face while fighting the tyrant ruler Alauddin Khilji.

The movie has been facing a storm of protests with Rajput groups claiming that it was an insult to Rani Padmavati.

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

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