Spell out objections to PM Modi biopic, Congress asked

Advaniji our father figure maintain decorum in speech Sushma Swaraj tells Rahul Gandhi

The court did not order on Monday and said it would hear the plea on Tuesday and that, in the meantime, the petitioner could have it record what was wrong in the film.

Mr Panwar contended that the film, if released, would give PM Modi political mileage as Lok Sabha elections are around the corner.

However, the court refused the petitioner's request that a copy of the film should be given to him.

The bench said that at that moment there was not sufficient evidence to challenge the release, especially the content of the film.

However, the film, which is a biopic on Modi, has been courting controversy for being released around the election time. When the bench asked the petitioner whether he had watched the film, Singhvi replied in the negative.




His father, who was also an actor, is a cardholder of BJP.

Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, representing the petitioner, said that the film violates the Model Code of Conduct. A lot of people, including the opposition, accused the makers of the Modi biopic of making a propaganda feature film to influence the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

It has sought directions to the Centre, CBFC and EC to delay its release till the completion of the General Elections next month.

It said there were several facts which demonstrated that the movie was not an innocuous work of art, despite the repeated statements of the producers, the director and the lead actor to the contrary. The first phase of voting is scheduled for 11 April, the day of the film's release.
