Supreme Court to hear plea against Padmavati today

The Supreme Court was critical on CM's of all five BJP ruled states for commenting on Padmavati before the CBFC certifying the film against its release slated on December 1 has been deferred for time being. All concerned people, holding responsible posts must be guided by rule of law and shouldn't venture into passing comments on films which haven't been cleared by CBFC. "It will prejudice decision making of the CBFC".

Lawyer M.L. Sharma had also sought a direction to the CBI to register a case against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and others for various offences including defamation and violation of the Cinematography Act.

Nitish has reportedly on Tuesday said that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period drama "Padmavati" will not be released in Bihar till the producers and director of the film make necessary changes in the film.

The bench which also comprised Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud termed Sharma's plea as "misconceived", but did not impose cost on the lawyer, considering he has been a practising lawyer of the apex court, the report added.
