Legal cases with fixed pricing, standardized processes, and firm timelines
The urgent plea seeking to stop the scheduled release of the movie ‘Nanak Shah Fakir’ has been rejected by the Supreme Court. Nanak Shah Fakir is the movie based on Guru Nanak’s life and teachings. The Court said that it will hear the plea after the release, on Monday.
The Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) referred to a 2003 resolution that as the statutory religious body, it is genuine religious grievances against any person who is playing the role of a Sikh Guru or his relative. They argued that in last 550 years none has depicted the role of the 10 Sikh Gurus or any of their family members and the Panj Pyaras, thus it should be restrained from releasing.
A bench consisting of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwikar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud told that the Censor Board does not need the permission for releasing a film from SGPC, a religious body, and no one can object the release of the movie without taking recourse to lawful means.
