Supreme Court refuses to pass order on plea seeking stay on biopic film on PM Modi

Newdelhi;8/4/19;The Supreme Court today said it cannot pass an order at this stage on a plea seeking a stay on the release of a biopic on PM Narendra Modi as the Censor Board was yet to certify the film.

The apex court said it will hear the matter tomorrow and possibly can pass an order if the petitioner brings on record that what the film depicts is highly objectionable. A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi refused the plea of the petitioner, a Congress activist, that the copy of the film should be given to him.

At the outset, the CJI said the film is not yet certified. Senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for the Congress activist, said the producer had come out with a statement that the biopic would be released on April 11.

Taking note of his submission, the bench said the producer may have come out with such a statement on the release of the biopic on April 11 anticipating that the film would get the certification from the Censor Board.  The bench said as of now there is no cause of action for challenging the release of the film.
