SC declines early hearing on plea against ‘Padmaavat’

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday declined to hold an early hearing on a plea challenging the grant of U/A certificate to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film “Padmaavat” by the Censor Board.

Lawyer ML Sharma had moved the court challenging the grant of Censor Board certificate to “Padmaavat”

Referring to its Thursday’s order refraining states from standing in the way of the movie’s release, Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud said they would hear the matter when it comes up in normal course.

Lawyer ML Sharma had moved the court challenging the grant of Censor Board certificate to “Padmaavat” which its critics say distorts historical facts.
