SC to hear plea of Padmavat producers against ban

Jaipur_Rajput

The latest offering from India's famous film industry has all the hallmarks of an epic historical blockbuster.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Bhoopendra Singh on Wednesday said the people should not play the songs of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film "Padmaavat", as it has been banned by the state government. But now the film has received a great sigh of relief as the Supreme court has lifted the ban on the film from Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

The Supreme Court in its interim order said, "all states are constitutionally obliged to maintain law and order and prevent any untoward incident during the screening of the film across India, a permission granted by CBFC".

"We are also planning a big protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi from January 22 where thousands of Rajputs from across the country will be gathering to stage a massive protest", he said. The Central Board of Film Certification had approved the film with some modifications in December.

The court discarded pleas by Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta who sought more time to present the state governments' views.

Hindu groups allege the film distorts history by depicting Rajput queen Padmini - the protagonist of the film - in a poor light.

Reacting to the development, Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij said they might appeal against the decision after going through the SC judgment.

The recent update is that Supreme Court has suspended the ban, News18 reported.

Lauding the apex court judgment, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said it was a vindication of artists' rights and freedom of speech.

"This judgement has broken the arrogance of the political parties who banned the film thinking they can do it", Pandit told IANS. "This order effectively means that the film will be released in these states [and a] ban on the release of this movie will have no effect". "Were trying to do vote bank politics and or shying away from their responsibilities of managing law and order".

Padmaavat has been caught in a row over alleged distortion of facts - a contention over which some Rajput organisations have demanded a nationwide ban on the film. "The best news of the day!"
