Supreme Court rejects plea demanding banning Padmavati outside India!

Padmavati support-3

The director Sanjay Leela Bhansali assured the Supreme Court that they will not release "Padmavati" in other countries till the time film is passed by CBFC.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, and justices A M Khanvilkar and D Y Chandrachud said that the remarks made by people holding responsible posts are indefensible and would create tension, and is against principles of law.

Talking to ANI, the comedian-turned-actor who was in Delhi recently for the promotion of his film "Firangi" said that those who have been protesting against the Padmavati have all the right to express their displeasure but can not issue threats. The release of the film was deferred indefinitely from the original date of December 1 until the film is finally granted a certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

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.

Filmmakers show support for Padmavati

The film has been facing widespread protests especially in the northern states with Rajput community members led by Karni Sena alleging that historical facts have been distorted in the film.

On November 22, Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani declared his government would not allow the release of the film in the poll-bound state.

The protestors have been alleging that Bhansali would portray the character of Rani Padmavati in a bad light. Rajasthan chief minister has also said that the film can only be released if "objectionable" scenes are deleted, Indian Express reported.

Padukone swept aside all controversies connected with the film and even threw a lavish party for her friends in Bollywood prior to the film's release, which has since been postponed following simmering protests by hardliners.
