Supreme Court Refuses To Stay Release Of Padmavati

Padmavati row: Supreme Court dismisses petition seeking a ban on film's release

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the petition filed against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. Kataria is learn to have discussed the possibility of a law and order situation if the movie was released in the state.

Gupta told News 18 that if he was present, he would have stopped the CBFC from clearing even the trailer of the movie, 'let alone the film'.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati team had also witnessed violent attacks few months back by locals who were offended by film's script. Seems like the fate of the film now lies in the hands, or rather the scissors, of the Censor Board. The top court further said to the petitioner that if they have any issues with the film they can take it up with the concerned appeals body, the film certification appellate tribunal.

While the film which stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in titular roles, has been facing opposition from a certain section of the Rajput community.

People, particularly Rajput community in Rajasthan, are protesting against the release of the movie alleging that it portrays Queen Padmavati in a very derogatory manner.

The plea said the war saga was based on the 13th-century battle between Maharaja Ratan Singh and his army of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi. The Karni Sena, had warned the director of awful consequences on showing distorted historical facts.

Bhansali, however, has said in the past that the film is his tribute to the "sacrifice, valour and honour" of Rani Padmavati. In the past two days, the Supreme Court and the Allahabad High Court have dismissed petitions seeking ban on the film.

The matter was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices DY Chandrachud and AM Khanwilkar. Citing the said provision, the petitioner claimed that the movie shows women committing sati and therefore, should be banned.
