Watch Modi biopic fully this time, SC tells ECI

The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Election Commission of India (ECI) to watch the movie PM Narendra Modifully before deciding on whether or not to stay its public screening.

A Bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi asked the ECI to report back to the apex court in sealed cover by Friday on whether the movie is to be publicly screened or not. 

The court found that the ECI had had “no occasion to watch” the film before passing its interim order on April 10 to stay its release. It seems, the court said, the ECI took its call on the basis of a short trailer.

“Consider the matter once again,” the court told the ECI.

The court also asked the ECI to provide the film makers an opportunity to be heard, if they so requested.

The court posted the next hearing on April 22.
