New Delhi. The Supreme Court will hear on May 15 a plea against the Kerala High Court’s order refusing to stay the release of controversial film ‘The Kerala Starry’. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal on Tuesday mentioned the matter for urgent listing before a bench of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha. When the bench asked whether the High Court has passed an order in the matter, Sibal said it has refused to stay the release of the film.
Then the bench said, “We will take it up on Monday (May 15).” The Kerala High Court had on May 5 refused to stay the film’s release, saying its trailer did not contain any objectionable content against an entire community. It said that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has examined the film and found it fit for public exhibition. Actress Adah Sharma is in the lead role in ‘The Kerala Story’, which released on Friday.
