Padmaavat Row: Supreme Court of India heard the plea from the government of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh today on the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie Padmaavat. After hearing the pleas the supreme court dismissed the pleas by the state governments of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Earlier, the order of the Supreme Court order had stayed the order issued by four states, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, which prohibited the screening of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. The movie has been under attack from Rajput fringe groups. Meanwhile, leaders of the Shree Rajput Karni Sena met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today and demanded a ban on the film in the state. The Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud have agreed to the states government’s plea for urgent hearing. State government’s claim is that the movie violates Section 6 of the Cinematograph Act which gives the right to the states to stop showing of any controversial movie on the grounds of possible violation of law and order. Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for film producer Viacom 18, opposed urgent hearing on any such interim applications. Ahead of the release in Delhi, the Police in the city has made arrangements outside cinema halls in the national capital to ensure that controversial movie Padmaavat is peacefully screened, in the wake of threats from various groups. Meanwhile, Karni Sena open to watching film ahead of release. “We are ready to watch the film. We never said that we will not watch the film. The filmmaker assured us one year ago that he will go for a special screening and now he has written for the screening and we are ready for it,” Sena leader Lokendra Singh Kalvi told PTI over the phone.
