Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Padmaavat has faced a lot of opposition from the communal groups. But now the film has received a great sigh of relief as the Supreme court has lifted the ban on the film from Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.
Senior lawyer, Harish Salve, and former attorney general Mukul Rohatgi appeared for Viacom 18, one of the film’s producers.
In their plea, the producers questioned the right of these four state governments to ban the film when the apex court has already clarified that the film’s screening can only be suspended in a particular area if there is a law and order situation developing.
