Supreme Court refuses to ban 'Padmavati' release

Padmavati

In a relief to makers of "Padmavati", the Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a plea seeking a stay on the release of the film on the grounds that it was granted a certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) after careful evaluation. "If I was present I would not have allowed the Censor Board to pass the trailer, let alone the film", Gupta added.

The film features Deepika Padukone as Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

Earlier in January, Bhansali was attacked and the film's set was vandalised while it was being shot in Rajasthan. Seems like the fate of the film now lies in the hands, or rather the scissors, of the Censor Board.

Therefore, the petitioner sought a stay on the release of the film and also prayed for the constitution of a committee of "eminent historians and prominent citizens" to check the historical veracity of the depiction of Rani Padmavati.

Veterans Day a day to honor those who served
The honor roll will be made of black granite, with a similar design to the Vietnam War Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. Some people participate in a moment of silence in remembrance of those who gave their lives for their country.

"Padmavati" is slated to release on December 1, and there is brouhaha over it as various organisations have been targeting the filmmaker for distortion of history in the movie, touted as a "historical drama". In the past two days, the Supreme Court and the Allahabad High Court have dismissed petitions seeking ban on the film.

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: Film actor Raza Murad, who is playing Khalji in film Padmavati, on Saturday said that Rani Padmavati has been shown as a very graceful lady and the film only highlights the "honour, prestige and bravery" of Rajput clan. Sati is a practice whereby a widow threw herself on to her husband's funeral pyre.

The matter was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices DY Chandrachud and AM Khanwilkar.

Declining to go into the merits of the matter, the bench said the petitioner has another forum where he could appeal for his grievance.
