SC agrees to hear petition seeking stay on release of PM Biopic starring Vivek Oberoi

Supreme Court: The Court has agreed to hear on April 8 advocate Aman Panwar, spokesperson of the Congress’s plea seeking stay on release of a biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for petitioner advocate Aman Panwar, spokesperson of the Congress, said two High courts have refused to interfere with the release of the movie starring Vivek Oberoi.

The Indore bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court had on Wednesday rejected a plea seeking ban on the release of the movie, ‘PM Narendra Modi’.  The Bombay High Court had also on Monday disposed of a plea seeking deferment of the release of the biopic, saying the Election Commission will deal with the issue.

Singhvi submitted that the release of the movie may affect free and fair election as mandated in the Constitution. He said the movie was slated to be released on April 5 but there were some media reports on Thursday which said the release has been deferred by a few days.

The Court will hear the matter on April 8.
