The filmmakers had moved the apex court challenging the EC’s order delaying its release date.

The petitioners contended that the poll body order violated the fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression guaranteed by the Constitution.

Last week, the EC issued an order barring the screening of political films during the polls.

The film starring Vivek Oberoi was slated to release on April 11, the first day of polling for the seven-phased Lok Sabha elections.

“Any biopic material in the nature of biography/hagiography sub-serving the purposes of any political entity or any individual entity connected to it, which is intended to, or which has the potential to disturb the level playing field during the elections, should not be displayed in electronic media, including cinematograph during the operation of the MCC (Model Code of Conduct),” the EC said in its order.

Earlier on April 9, the apex court had rejected a plea filed by a Congress leader, Aman Panwar to stay the release of the biopic. It had also refused to consider the issue whether the screening would tilt the balance in the favour of a political party.

The court had said let the EC decide the matter.
