  • Supreme Court to hear fresh plea seeking ban on film ‘Padmavati’ outside India on next week
23-11-2017 | Pratidin Bureau. |

The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear on next week a fresh plea seeking a direction to makers of the Bollywood film ‘Padmavati’ not to release it outside India on December 1. A bench of the Apex Court said it would hear the case on Tuesday the plea that alleged that the makers of ‘Padmavati’ misrepresented facts before the court with regard to Censor Board’s approval on releasing songs and the promo.

Previously, the Apex Court had dismissed the plea seeking deletion of certain alleged objectionable scenes from the movie. It also observed that the CBFC has not yet given certificate to the movie and the apex court cannot “injunct” a statutory body from doing its duty.

Meanwhile, for the UK audience, the film ‘Padmavati’ has been cleared by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) without any cuts. However, the producers of the film today said they are not planning to release the film without the Indian censor board’s go-ahead.

Padmavati has been facing the wrath of various Rajput groups and political leaders, who have accused Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of distorting history.
