Supreme Court: Padmaavat to release in all states

Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor’s Padmaavat was supposed to release on December 1 but after much delay, the film is finally releasing on January 25. Till yesterday, the film was releasing in the entire country, except the states of Haryana, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Now, the Supreme Court has agreed for the film to release even in these states following a writ petition which was filed by Padmaavat producers in the wake of the protests in four states- Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan.

In the petition, the producers argued that the Supreme Court had earlier clarified that a screening of a movie can be banned in a particular area only in relation to the law and order in that area. One cannot impose a complete ban.

Well, this is good news!
