People in position should not comment on 'Padmavati': SC

The Supreme Court on Tuesday urged the chief ministers of the different states that have announced a veto on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus movie "Padmavati", quoting that they can not disallow the film in Silver Screen and added that they should not "prejudice the movie".

"When matter is pending for the Central Board of Film Certification's (CBFC) consideration, how can persons holding public offices comment on whether the CBFC should issue certificate or not?"

The release of the film, which was earlier slated for December 1 in India, has been deferred as the filmmakers are yet to secure a censor certificate. "It'll prejudice minds of board members while taking a decision", a top Court bench hearing the plea quoted.

SC dismissed a plea seeking criminal prosecution of producers and director of "Padmavati" and slammed the petitioner for filing a "frivolous petition".

According to India Today, protests are being staged outside Bihar legislative assembly, with several politicians of the BJP protesting against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial film.

Expressing suspicion on the funding of the movie, Swamy asked the ED to investigate the financing behind the Bhansali movie.

The High Court had also dismissed a petition asking for the stay on the release of the movie, citing it as misguided and hopeless, and asking if the persons wanted to instigate violence in the country.

Starring Ranveer Singh (as Sultan Alauddin Khilji), Deepika Padukone (as Rani Padmavati, in the lead) and Shahid Kapoor (as Maharawal Ratan Singh), "Padmavati" is being distributed internationally by Paramount Pictures. The new release date is yet to be unveiled by the filmmakers.
