Such statements violate the principle of rule of law as the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is yet to certify the film, it said, asking the board to take a decision on the certification of the movie with "utmost objectivity".

The film has been approved by the United Kingdom Censor Board, the makers decided that movie will not release anywhere globally including in the UAE and UK until it is released in India. He said on Tuesday that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati will not be released in the state until the director has clarified his stand on the controversy.

Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for the movie director and producer, said the film will not be released overseas until it receives a CBFC certificate.

Dismissing a PIL filed by advocate M.L. Sharma as "misconceived", the bench, also comprising Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud, said that when even courts do not pre-judge an issue, surely those in high public offices should refrain from making such comments. However, the whole movie was shot in 2D, but the makers have chose to convert the movie into a 3D after they got a positive feedback on the 3D trailer.

"We are waiting for a screening date (from CBFC)".

The ban by Bihar, ruled by a JD-U-BJP coalition, follows that by BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.

Taking exception to some portions of Sharma's petition, the court said it was "unwarranted and scurrilous". Several groups, mainly Rajput, have been demanding a ban on Padmavati, starring Deepika Padukone with Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in key roles.The film was earlier scheduled to be released on December 1, but it has been deferred.
