On Monday, the Supreme Court has refused to entertain a petition asking for cancellation of the certificate issued by the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) to the film Article 15 and ordered the petitioner approach the necessary authority with their affront.
A justice-bench led by Justices B R Gavai and S A Bobde told the counsel appeared for the petitioner that “you go to the appropriate authority under the act.”
Popular Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Article 15 hits the screen on June 28.
The petitioner “Brahman Samaj of India” had approached the Supreme Court asking for cancellation of certificate issue to Article 15, accused that there were offensive dialogues that were wide spreading rumours and caste hatred in the society.
After the top court ordered the petitioner to approach the necessary authority with their protests, the counsel has withdrawn their petition with the liberty to approach the concerned authority.
