SC refuses to stay release of Padmavati

Padmavati

AMN / NEW DELHI

The Supreme Court  Friday refused to stay the release of ‘Padmavati’ over which the Allahabad High Court also declined to entertain a plea seeking a ban of the Bollywood film.

The Supreme Court dismissed a plea seeking ban on the release of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film, Padmavati. The court has trusted Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to consider all aspects before granting a certificate to the Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh film.

The court verdicts come as a big boost to Bhansali in the aftermath of a mob attack in Jaipur and a vandalism incident in Kolhapur during the shooting of the film.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra refused to entertain a plea seeking a stay of the release of the film after it enquired at the outset as to whether or not the Censor Board has issued the certification.

On being intimated that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was yet to certify the movie, the bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said that the court should not exercise its writ jurisdiction in such situation.

The bench was hearing a plea against the film.

In Lucknow, a division bench of the Allahabad High Court asked a petitioner, seeking a ban on the movie “Padmavati” on the ground that it allegedly propagates the practice of ‘Sati’, to approach the Censor Board with his plea.

The bench yesterday refused to interfere in the matter.

Declining to go into the merits of the matter, the bench said the petitioner has another forum where he could appeal for his grievance.
