The makers of ‘PM Narendra Modi’ have moved the Supreme Court in India over the film’s delay.

It was confirmed this week that the film will not be able to release until the Lok Sabha elections in India are over in May. The decision was made the Election Commission.

The Election Commission noted, “It is claimed that such creative contents are kind of surrogate publicity by the candidate or the political party during the period of model code. Though the display materials claim to be part of creative content, it is contended that these have propensity and potentiality to affect the level playing field which is not in consonance with the provisions of the model code of conduct.”

A court hearing headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi is scheduled for Monday, which could decide the film’s fate.
