The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition that sought the deletion of certain scenes from the film Padmaavat.

The petition was filed by a lawyer Manohar Lal Sharma.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali magnum opus, which released on January 25, has been embroiled into controversy since its inception.

While various Hindu and Rajput fringe outfits have raised objections over the epic drama, the Supreme Court has given a green signal to the film.

The top court had set aside the notification passed by the states of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat to ban the release of the movie.

Meanwhile, various fringe groups including Rajput Karni Sena went on a rampage and created ruckus all over India demanding a ban on the film.
