  • A still from Padmavati

Today, the Supreme Court took a very strong exception that they have released the statement which was made by the person who is holding the high offices which is against the movie 'Padmavati.

"When matter is pending consideration of CBFC, how can persons holding public offices comment on whether CBFC should issue certificate or not?"

Dismissing the petition to stay the release of film overseas, the court said it is for the CBFC to take the call on the movie. "It'll prejudice minds of board members while taking a decision", Indian Express quoted the court as saying. The filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been accused of disturbing the history with his film Padmavati. While Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje has sought a committee to discuss the film, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani said it had "hurt Rajput sentiments" and done "foul play with culture".

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


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. Padmavati is based on the ruthless Alauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh, and his attempt to capture the attractive Rani Padmini of Chittor played by Deepika Padukone.

The filmmakers also reportedly protested against the communities like Karni Sena who have threatened the filmmakers and the artists to stop its release.

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