The petitioners argued that countries like Brazil, Argentina and Russia had already banned the film and removed the video clips from the site.

Responding to the plea, government's counsel submitted that the government had taken action against the websites.

“The government has already blocked 157 URLs and let the petitioner give the link, we would take action,” Additional Solicitor General Rajeev Mehra said. A division bench headed by chief justice D Murugesan reserved the order after hearing the parties.
