Padmavati Release: SC says won't intervene before Censor Board

New Delhi, Nov 10: The row surrounding the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus is refusing to die down. Ever since this film has come on floor, it is marred by one controversy or the other and as the release day of this grand epic drama draws near, resistance against its release is getting bigger and more violent. 

Supreme Court dismisses petition filed against release of the film Padmavati.

While dismissing the petition, Supreme Court said that the Censor Board has not yet issued certificate to Padmavati, it is an independent body and therefore SC should not intervene in their jurisdiction

Bhansali released a video statement on the film's official Twitter account yesterday calling the Deepika Padukone-Shahid Kapoor-Ranveer Singh starer his tribute to the "sacrifice, valour and honour" of Rani Padmavati. In his video appeal, Bhansali said rumours about a romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmavati (Padukone) and Alauddin Khilji.

Various Rajput groups have accused the director of distorting historical facts.
