Biopic on PM Modi: SC to hear on April 15 plea challenging EC's ban

File Pic:PTI
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear on 15th April a plea challenging the Election Commission's ban on the release of biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A bench headed by Chief Justice today said it will hear the plea filed by the producers of the biopic.

The poll panel had on Wednesday banned the screening of the biopic during poll period, saying any such film that subserves the purpose of any political entity or any individual entity connected to it, which has potential to disturb level playing field during the elections should not be displayed in the electronic media.
 
The apex court had on Tuesday disposed of the petition seeking stay on the release of the biopic, saying the Election Commission was the right forum to decide the issue.

The top court had left it for the Election Commission to take a call by saying that since the movie was not certified at that time by the Censor Board it could not entertain the petition seeking ban on the film. Later, on Tuesday evening , the Censor Board had certified the biopic and the Congress activist on Wednesday secured a ban on its release from the Election Commission.
