The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the petition filed against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati.

While yesterday we had reported how the Karni Sena had issued threats to the theatre owners in Rajasthan against screening the film, today, the Home Minister of the state has assured that the release of the film will not be jeopardised.

As the certification by the Censor Board is yet to be granted qua the film, hence it was premature for the petitioners to seek the relief as prayed.

A delegation consisting of members from the outfits which took part in the demonstration later submitted a memorandum to the Maharashtra government, through the district collector, seeking a ban on the controversial film.

The court verdicts come as a big boost to Bhansali in the aftermath of a mob attack in Jaipur and a vandalism incident in Kolhapur during the shooting of the film. "Has the film been placed before the censor board?" After the Supreme Court dismissed a petition against the release of the movie, BJP lawmaker Subramanian Swamy had a few statements to make on it.

It was alleged that there was an apprehension that there were intimate scenes in the film, involving Allauddin Khilji (played by Ranveer Singh) and Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone). He appealed to CBFC not to pass certification to the movie.

Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, Padmavati will release worldwide on December 1. Padmavati, the queen of Mewar, and several Rajput women had sacrificed their lives by committing "jauhar" (sati), the plea said, adding that the movie distorted historical truths, "hurting the sentiments of Kshatriya community".

The matter was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices DY Chandrachud and AM Khanwilkar. The rumour is that in the movie, a dream scene has been filmed between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji.
