New Delhi: Officials of the Election Commission are expected to watch biopic on PM on Wednesday. This has been directed by the Supreme Court of India.
The EC has asked the producers of the film to arrange for a screening for a committee set up for the purpose.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also directed the poll panel to submit its decision to the court in a sealed cover and said it will consider the matter on April 22.
Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for film producers who challenged the EC’s ban on the release, said the poll panel banned it just by watching the promo and did not watch the full movie.
The EC had on Wednesday last banned the screening of the biopic during the current poll period, saying any such film that undermines the purpose of any political entity or individual should not be displayed in electronic media.
