Padmaavat to be released in 3D on 24 January in select theatres

Padmaavat to be released in 3D on 24 January in select theatres”

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra also restrained any other state from issuing such notifications and orders prohibiting exhibition of the movie.

The Supreme Court said on Monday it will hear appeals by the governments in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday to modify its order that allowed controversial Bollywood film Padmaavat to be released in theatres across India on January 25.

Furthermore, Karni Sena - the group which led the protest against the historical period drama - has also asked the SC to ban the movie since the makers have allegedly twisted historical facts.

The Supreme Court has all but read the riot act to States taking shelter behind the imperatives of maintaining law and order.

Meanwhile, along with Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Haryana governments too banned the release of the movie, amid violent protests and threats from various Rajput groups. The court had allowed the producers to release the film across the country. One of them included changing the film's name from Padmavati to Padmavat, after the 16th Century epic poem of the same name.

Padmavat will release on 25 January.

Earlier on Sunday, thousands of women organized a "Chetavni (warning) rally" in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh town.

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

The flick has run into trouble time and again, as members of several Rajput factions have accused the director of the film, Bhansali of distorting history. Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria has also reportedly extended an invitation to the Karni Sena to jointly fight against the film's release in order to "strengthen the case" (its review petition against Padmaavat's release), reports IANS.

A day after ruling that the film Padmaavat can not be banned by states on account of potential law and order trouble, the SC on Friday, also rejected a plea seeking urgent hearing on a fresh PIL that sought cancellation of Censor Board's certificate granted to the movie.
