When the matter is pending for the CBFC's consideration, how can persons holding public offices comment on whether the CBFC should issue an A certificate or not?
The court said these kinds of statements are violative of the principle of Rule of Law as Censor Board is yet to certify the movie. "It will prejudice decision making of the CBFC".
Sharma is seeking direction to delete certain objectionable scenes from the movie. The bench has also comprised of the Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud and they term as misconceived the prayers which were sought out by Mr. Sharma in his fresh petition and he clearly said that the court cannot judge the movie which is yet to be certified by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
The irked did not impose Mr. Sharma by keeping in view the fact that has been practicing by the lawyer of the apex court.
Padmavati has been banned by four states, Uttar Pradesh, Madhay Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan.
The film is now in the black shadows and there are few chances that it will get a clear release anytime soon, despite that now the Padmavati makers have zeroed themselves to a new release date for the film.
The protestors have been alleging that Bhansali would portray the character of Rani Padmavati in a bad light.
The filmmakers also reportedly protested against the communities like Karni Sena who have threatened the filmmakers and the artists to stop its release.
Padukone swept aside all controversies connected with the film and even threw a lavish party for her friends in Bollywood prior to the film's release, which has since been postponed following simmering protests by hardliners.
