Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the petition filed against upcoming Bollywood film ‘Padmavati’.
While rejecting the plea, the top court said that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) considers all aspects ahead of granting a certificate to any film and, therefore, the court should not intervene in Censor Board’s jurisdiction.
The court was hearing the petition filed by Siddharajsinh M Chudasama and others, which also demanded setting up of a committee of noted historians to chalk out the veracity of the script in a bid to prevent any inaccuracy in the portrayal of the legendary queen.
The iconic film starring Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji, scheduled to release on December 1.
Due to its story plot, the movie invited flak by some of the right wing outfits calling it the wrong portrayal of the Rajput rani.
