Padmavati row: Bhansali, CBFC chief Joshi to meet Parl panel today

Petitioner M.L. Sharma, an advocate, had sought criminal prosecution of the movie's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and producer Mukesh Ambani, and a stay on the film's release overseas, which he claimed the makers were planning.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that "persons holding public office " should not comment on matters pending before the Central Board of Film Certification, handing a rebuke to the political class while hearing a petition relating to the movie Padmavati. The 2D application came to them a while back. 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 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. The makers of the movie have submitted the three application which includes the latest 3D one, to the Censor Board. A formal decision on the second application is still pending with the board. Our clock has stopped now, we are just waiting and waiting. While speaking to media, he said it would be wrong to comment on the film before it releases.

Historians are also divided on whether Padmini actually existed. Let's see when we get to see this movie. The court further added that if the court can't prejudge the movie than why are people doing it. This will be prejudice and moreover, he said that the bench has asked the CBFC to take the decision on the certification of the movie with the utmost objectivity.

The court's remarks adopt implication with the chief ministers of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh banning the film.

"It is true that there is a meeting between the CBFC and Bhansali regarding "Padmavati" called by a parliamentary panel today", PTI quoted a source in the censor board as saying.
