The Supreme Court restated that it is the complete choice of the national censor board to do the analysis and review the movie – “Padmavati,” and make a choice on whether it is appropriate for screening in the nearby theaters.
For the 3rd time this month, the Supreme Court has completely turned down the appeal to ban and outlaw the movie “Padmavati” and added, in a haul over the coals to CM and other political leaders who have spoken out in opposition to the motion picture, “those who are holding public offices should never comment on these issues.” The judges stated again that it is the privilege of the national censor board to review and evaluate the motion picture and make a right verdict on whether it is appropriate for screening in the cities.
“When the issue is pending the deliberation of the (Central Board of Film Certification) CBFC, how can people who are holding public offices pass remarks on whether CBFC must issue official document or not? That will bigotry the verdict of the CBFC,” the judges stated. “Padmavati” film has been disparate by many top political leaders who say that the motion picture cannot be permitted to “misrepresent history” and cause offense to the sentiments and emotions of Hindu groups.
The CM of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh have stated they will not permit the film to get released even if it gets a green signal from the censor board. Several top union ministers have stated to the film maker, Mr Sanjay Leela Bhansali should discuss with opponents of the motion picture and historians to reach the destination at a description that is good enough to them all.
Artists and filmmakers have added that this is an unconcealed infringement of freedom of expression. The 192-crore film is directed by the renowned Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has completely deprived of reports that the picture suggests a romance and saga among Rajput fighter queen Padmini and Sultan Alauddin Khilji, who was infatuated with her beauty and charm.
