  • SC dismisses plea against release of 'Padmavati' outside India

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking a stay on the global release of film Padmavati, while criticising statements made by "persons in responsible posts" on it.

Taking exception to people holding official positions making adverse comments about the film "Padmavati", a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud said: "We are governed by the rule of law".

The bench which also comprised of Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud termed as "misconceived", the prayers sought by Sharma in his fresh petition and said that the court can not pre-judge a movie which is yet to be certified by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, on the other hand, has already assured Supreme Court that the film will not be released in any country till the final certification is not issued by the Censor Board. 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".
