Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The Supreme today refused to entertain a plea seeking a stay on the release of the upcoming movie 'Padmavati', saying the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) considers all aspects before granting certificate to any film.

A bench comprising Chief Justice and Justices A M Khanwilkar and said there were enough guidelines to be followed by the censor board to grant certification of a film before its release.


The bench was hearing a plea filed by Siddharajsinh M Chudasama and 11 others, which also sought setting up of a committee of eminent historians to check the veracity of the script to prevent any inaccuracy in the portrayal of Rani Padmavati.

The petitioners have sought a stay on the release of the film till such time the alleged historical inaccuracies in the movie are corrected by the producer and the director.
