SC Warns Netas To Not Pass Any Comment On Padmavati

Padmavati controversy Parliamentary committee summoned Sanjay Leela Bhansali

The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea seeking a ban on the release of controversial film Padmavati in the United Kingdom on December 1 and warned politicians and those holding public offices not to make adverse comments, issue threats or pre-judge the movie before it is cleared by the Censor Board. Now that they have applied for 3D (certification), we will have to look into the new application.

"When there is simultaneous release of 2D and 3D versions, we only certify the 3D part", the source added. Firstly, they will scrutinize the application and then they have to follow the due process and because of that, they have not given any screening date of the movie yet. The first was returned because there was no disclaimer.

The controversial film, which has angered right-wing Hindu groups for allegedly distorting history, is based on the saga of the historic battle of 13th century between Maharaja Ratan Singh and his Army of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi. A formal decision on the second application is still pending with the board. There are historians which are also divided on whether the Rani Padmini really existed.

Bhansali has also been questioned on why he screened the movie for the media before getting the CBFC clearance.

Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for the movie director and producer, said the film will not be released overseas until it receives a CBFC certificate. Our clock has stopped now, we are just waiting and waiting.

Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork announced Matt Luke's hiring in team meeting
Taking over for Hugh Freeze , who resigned amidst controversy in July , Luke led Ole Miss to a 6-6 overall record (3-5 SEC West). The Rebels did have an up-and-down season under Luke but found a way to finish the year with a 6-6 record.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday took exception to people holding official positions making "prejudicial comments" about the Hindi film "Padmavati", saying these breached the principle of rule of law.

Censor board Chairman Prasoon Joshi appeared before a parliamentary panel to brief members about the controversy over "Padmavati" and said the film had not yet been approved.

Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Bihar have already banned the film, yet to be certified by the censor board.

The Karni Sena, a fringe group, has led the protests against the film and has threatened to harm Deepika Padukone who plays the lead role.
