Padmaavat To Release Pan India; SC Lifts The Ban By State Governments

Written by Archit Chawla

After endless controversies, speculations and protests all over the country, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavat’ finally gets a clean chit. After the makers made their minds to release the film on coming January 25, 2018, the movie was recently banned in states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh despite the film being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). But now, the Supreme Court has ruled out the ban ensuring an all India release of the film Padmaavat.

The bench, comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud observed that the states are obliged to maintain law and order. and has stated- “We direct that there shall be a stay of operation on the notification and orders issued and we also restrain other states from issuing such notifications or orders in this matter.”

Senior advocates Harish Salve and Mukul Rohatgi, representing Viacom 18 and other producers of the movie have stated- “If states are banning a film, then it is destroying federal structure. It is a serious matter. If somebody has a problem,then he or she can approach appellate tribunal for relief. State can’t touch the content of a film. Request the Central government to pass a direction to the states for a better and an effective step and solution.”

The movie Padmaavat is directed and written by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles.
