On Tuesday, the Supreme Court has dismissed a Congress leader’s plea seeking to hold the release of PM Modi’s biopic, PM Narendra Modi, saying “too much of court time is wasted on these non-issues”. It continued that it is the Election Commission to decide if the movie is scheduled for release on Thursday or not, began of 2019 National Elections- lean the balance in favor of BJP, as complained by Congress.

The court claims that the petition was “premature” as the movie was yet to be certified by the Censor Board. A justice-bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, and Justices Sanjiv Khanna, and Deepak Gupta said, “We, therefore, do not consider it fit to entertain the petition.”

A senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, who is representing Congress spokesman Aman Pawar, had argued that the move disturbs the level-playing field, 4 office-bearers of the BJP are the film producers, he said. The grand old party has reported that the movie release close to the General Election violates the Model Code of Conduct.

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi is playing the lead role in PM Narendra Modi as Narendra Modi, tweeted after the top court’s order:

Last week, Mr. Oberoi has headlined the controversy surrounding the movie after he targeted the opposition, wonders “if they are scared of the movie or of Chowkidar’s danda”.

Congress has promptly replied, saying it is a “bogus film of a flop hero, a flop producer and is made on a flop person who has proved to be a zero.”
