SC directs poll body to inform decision on PM biopic

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has directed Election Commission to watch the biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and give its decision in sealed cover.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi on Monday said it will consider the matter on April 22 after getting full details on the biopic.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for film producers who challenged the EC’s ban on release, said the poll panel banned it just by watching the promo and did not watch the full movie.

He suggested they are willing to hold a special screening for the poll panel or its committee so that they can take a decision by Friday.

It is worthwhile to mention that the poll panel had on Wednesday banned the screening of the biopic during the current poll period.

It said any such film that undermines the purpose of any political entity or individual should not be displayed in the electronic media.
