MP mulls review plea in Supreme Court over ban on film

Posted January 23, 2018

Lawmakers from the states of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan have filed urgent petitions before the Supreme Court, asking that they be allowed to reimpose the ban, as they fear further violence.

The states alleged that section 6 of the Cinematograph Act allows them to stop showing of any controversial film on the grounds of probable violation of law and order.

The makers were heaving a sigh of relief that their film will see the light of day in these four states.

In Rajasthan, protests against the film have intensified ever since the Supreme Court paved way for its countrywide release on January 25.

Activists of Karni Sena also staged blockades by burning tyres on roads connecting Ujjain to Nagda, Dewas to Maksi and Agar to Kota.

"Karni Sena would impose curfew inside theatres while the public would do the same outside", he said.

Earlier the film was slated to release on Dec 1, 2017.
