Padmavati-1NEW DELHI : The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a plea seeking a stay on the release of the upcoming Bollywood movie Padmavati, saying the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) considers all aspects before granting certificate to any film.
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 of a film before its release. The bench was hearing a plea filed by Siddharajsinh M Chudasama and 11 others, which also sought 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 have sought a stay on the release of the film till such time the alleged historical inaccuracies in the movie are corrected by the producer and the director. The movie stars Deepika , Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the leads and is slated to hit the theatres on December 1.
