SC rebukes persons in public offices for making prejudicial comments

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a fresh plea seeking to stall the release of'Padmavati outside India

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a fresh plea seeking to stall the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed "Padmavati" outside India.

The top court also said that these kind of statements are violative of the principle of Rule of Law as Censor Board is yet to certify the movie. The petitioner who demanded the prosecution of film's producers and director was slammed by the court for filing a "frivolous petition". Kumar's statement comes after the Supreme Court categorically told politicians and those holding positions in public offices, to not comment on the film without watching it, as this had created an "air of prejudice" around Padmavati.

"When matter is pending for CBFC's consideration, how can persons hold public offices comment on whether CBFC should issue the certificate or not?" It'll prejudice decision making of CBFC...

He refuted that the film will be released overseas on December 1.

The story revolves around the queen Padmini of Chittore, her husband Rawal Ratan Singh and the adversities they face while fighting the tyrant ruler Alauddin Khilji.

Harish Salve, representing the film's director and producer, said there was no intention of releasing the film overseas until it had received classification at home.
