NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Election Commission to watch PM Narendra Modi’s biopic and give its decision in sealed cover by April 22 to the court on whether the film could be released during electioneering. The SC on April 9 had said whether or not the film could be released and whether or not it would tilt the level playing field during electioneering would be decided by the EC, which a day later had banned its release. When the film’s producer challenged the EC decision, a bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi asked whether the commission had watched the film before banning its release. ” The CJI-led bench asked the EC to watch the film, which will be specially screened for the commission by the producer, and take a decision on its release by Friday. “The EC will submit its decision in a sealed cover to the Supreme Court on Monday (April 22),” the CJI said.
