The makers of ‘PM Narendra Modi’ has got some relief from the Supreme Court of India as it has directed the Election Commission (EC) to re-examine its decision to ban the film till the Lok Sabha elections. The SC has ordered the EC panel to watch the full movie and then submit its decision to the court by April 19.

Producer Sandip Ssingh says, “We are not challenging the law of the land or the EC’s decision. We simply put forth a request to the Supreme Court on Friday morning, and also forwarded our trailer and dialogue promos. On Monday, at the hearing, the Supreme Court directed the EC to watch the film and submit its report.”

“The EC notice came a few hours before the release (April 11) and we suffered huge losses. This is the first time that despite being cleared by various High Courts and the Supreme Court and passed with a ‘U’ certificate from the censor board, a film’s release was stalled. I’m sure we will get justice now and can plan our release date. Despite curiosity among the audience to watch this film, the release has been pushed twice — April 5 and April 11. Our distributors are unhappy and the team is demotivated,” he says.

He further adds, “We have done whatever is asked from us, now we will wait for them to give us a date. This screening will decide the future of our film. But we are hopeful the outcome will be positive.”

Biopic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which was earlier scheduled to release on April 5, was postponed because the Election Commission of India halted the movie’s released until the elections are over.

The stall order by election commission said that such films “affect the level playing field which is not in consonance with the provisions of Model Code of Conduct.”

Against the EC’s order, producer Sandip Ssingh has moved to the Supreme Court.
