A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar said the release cannot be stopped after hearing a plea by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee that challenged a no-objection certificate by the censor board.
The petition claimed the movie had portrayed the family members of Guru Nanak through actors that it said was against the principles of Sikh religion.
The Supreme Court will take up the matter on Monday.
The apex court pointed out that the CBFC had already cleared the film for release. It also said that outsiders cannot control the freedom of expression of an artiste.
