SC rejects stay on Padmavati plea


Jaipur, Nov 10 : Padmavati row ceases to die down.

The Supreme Court today rejected a plea seeking a stay on the release of movie ‘Padmavati’, saying the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) considers all aspects before granting certificate to any film.

The movie is slated to release on Dec 1.

A Bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud, said there were enough guidelines to be followed by the censor board to grant certification to a film before its release.

The petitioner Siddharajsinh M Chudasama and 11 others, sought the setting up of a committee of eminent historians to check the veracity of the script to prevent any inaccuracy in the portrayal of Rani Padmavati.

The petitioners sought a stay on the release of the film till such time the alleged historical inaccuracies in the film are corrected by the producer and the director.

Meanwhile , Rajasthan government has formed a panel to look into issues that are bothering the Rajput community and will ask them to remove the scenes, which may hurt the sentiments of the community. It is to be headed by state home minister Gulab Chand Kataria.
