Congress party activist's petition at the apex court to hold the release of PM Modi biopic before the
election was rejected. The supreme court said it is not entertaining the petition for the stay on the
release of the movie as the movie had not yet been certified by the censor board.
The slick biopic, titled PM Narendra Modi, is due for release on 5 April, days before India's weeks-long voting period begins. It has created a furious reaction
from the opposition Congress party, which sees it as a nakedly political move with links to the governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The party is not involved, but lead actor Vivek Oberoi is a noted Modi supporter. At the launch of a trailer earlier this month, he repeated a BJP election
slogan - "Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai (Modi makes it possible)" - in response to a question.
