New Delhi [India], Nov 28 (ANI): The Supreme Court will hear the plea filed by lawyer Manohar Lal Sharma against

the film Padmavati on Tuesday.

Sharma is seeking direction to delete certain objectionable scenes from the movie.

The plea filed by Sharma also sought prosecution of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Earlier on November 10, the apex court rejected the petition filed against the release of Bhansali's magnum opus

'Padmavati', saying the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has not yet issued a certificate to the movie.

The film has been embroiled in a spate of controversies ever since its inception.

The period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests

from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering historical facts. (ANI)
