SC dismisses petition against Padmavati's release, says 'can't take over duties of Censor Board'

 The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition against the release of the film 'Padmavati', saying that it cannot take over the duties of the Censor Board, the body certifies the film for release.

The top court further said to the petitioner that if they have any issues with the film they can take it up with the concerned appeals body, the film certification appellate tribunal.

'Padmavati', being made in Hindi by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is a film based on the life of Queen Padmini. No one knows if she was a real person or just a figure from literature.

A section of people believes she was a real and opposes the film. These people believe the filmmaker has distorted history as the film, some say, shows a romantic relationship between the Hindu Padmini from Chittor and a Muslim ruler from Delhi, Allauddin Khilji. Some literature says Padmini set fire to herself when Khilji captured Chittor, to evade being taken into custody by him.
