New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition filed against Bollywood film 'Padmavati'. 

The court said that the Censor Board has not yet issued certificate to the film and that it is an independent body, where SC should not intervene in their jurisdiction.

Meanwhile, Allahabad High Court's Lucknow bench has also dismissed a petition seeking stay on release of Padmavati. It has asked the petitioner to approach concerned body.

The film has been embroiled in a spate of controversies ever since its inception. The period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering historical facts.
