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

The top court further directed officials holding responsible positions to avoid commenting on the film, since it amounts "to pre-judging it".

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, and justices A M Khanvilkar and D Y Chandrachud stated, "When the matter is pending the consideration of the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification), how can persons holding public offices comment on whether CBFC should issue certificate or not?"

Further observing the judgement statements as violative of the principle of Rule of Law, Supreme Court affirmed, "those holding public offices should not comment on such issues".

Meanwhile, Padmavati has been in the news these days, thanks to the protests against its release.
