Supreme Court Rejects Petition To Remove Objectionable Scenes From Movie Padmavati

The Supreme Court of India has disposed of a petition seeking removal of certain alleged objectionable scenes from the upcoming movie ‘Padmavati’, declaring it as a premature.

It made it clear that it wants the Censor Board to come to an independent and considered decision on certifying the movie.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra was informed that the film has not yet received the certification from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

"Our interference in this writ petition will tantamount to pre-judging, which we are not inclined to do," the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, said.

Advocate M L Sharma, who had filed the petition, alleged that though the Censor Board has not given a certificate to the movie, the songs of the film have already been released.

Sharma had approached the court seeking a direction for removal of all scenes of alleged 'character assassination' of Queen Padmini from the movie before its release. [Inputs TOI]
