Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi Biopic to release after Lok Sabha Election 2019, says Supreme Court


The Supreme Court on Friday refused to interfere with the Election Commission's decision on the biopic PM Narendra Modi, starring Vivek Oberoi. 

The poll panel told the court that film should be released only after the Lok Sabha elections got over as there is a probability that a particular political party will gain electoral mileage if the film is permitted to be released during the ongoing polls.

The seven-phased polls began on April 11, when the biopic was to release. The polls will get over on May 19 and the counting of votes on May 23.

To secure level playing ground, the poll panel was asked to take a call keeping in mind the moral code of conduct to be followed during the elections.
