The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition seeking deletion of certain alleged objectionable scenes from Bollywood movie Padmavati , calling it “premature”.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra observed that Central Board of Film Certification has not yet given certificate to the movie and the apex court cannot “injunct” a statutory body from doing its duty." We have been apprised that the film has not yet received the certificate from the CBFC. In view of the aforesaid, our interference in this writ petition will tantamount to pre- judging, which we are not inclined to do," the bench, also comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, said.

The bench also struck off certain paragraphs from the plea filed by advocate ML Sharma, saying pleadings in a court “are not meant to create any kind of disharmony in the society”.
