SC to hear MP, Rajasthan's plea on 'Padmaavat' on Tuesday

The Supreme Court will take up Rajasthan and MP governments’ plea against Padmaavat on Tuesday

The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Madhya Pradesh government and sought a detailed reply from it within four weeks in connection with a plea filed by a legal services authority lawyer, who had appeared for a life convict, seeking a fixed jail term in cases of life imprisonment. He said: "If someone decides not to screen the film, it will be good but if someone screens the film, they will be provided security". Both governments have said owing to law and order problems and sentiments, the movie can not be screened in their respective states.

In November, after meeting Rajput community leaders, Chouhan had announced that the film would not be allowed to release in the state.

The counsels for the two states on Monday mentioned the matter for urgent hearing seeking modification/clarification of the court's January 18 order that stayed notification/orders of Gujarat, Rajasthan and Haryana government banning the release of the film in the three states.

While state governments make way to the apex court, vandalism, protests and violence continues sporadically across various parts in India.


The callers reportedly claimed that they were from Karni Sena, the group which is protesting against the release of the epic drama. He said he is set to fly to Delhi to see the scenario, following which he will meet Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and UP CM Yogi Adityanath, adds the Hindustan Times report.

Lokendra Singh Kalvi, the head of Rajput Karni Sena who was in Indore on Thursday, had said that the organisation won't let theatres screen the movie.

The ban was imposed by Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh despite the film being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The movie is scheduled to release January 25.
