The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the plea seeking stay on release of “PM Narendra Modi”, a biopic on the Prime Minister.

The court said that the appropriate body to address the petitioner’s concerns is the Election Commission, as it is a constitutional body.

The EC should decide if the release of the film in the wake of upcoming Lok Sabha elections tilts the balance or benefits a particular political party during the elections.

The apex court said that too much time of the court has been wasted already, therefore, the EC should decide whether it is violation of the model code of conduct.

The court even refused to see the trailer of the film.

Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that the certificate of the film is yet to be issued and asked the EC to decide how does the film impact the upcoming elections, and creates political mileage for a particular party.

Rubbishing the arguments of counsel for petitioner the court said the film is not yet released. “How does it disturb the natural balance of level playing field in politics” — cannot be decided by the court, the bench said.

Meghan and Prince Harry opened up on their struggles in an emotional documentary aired on ITV last night. Meghan revealed she was warned how different the media attention would be as a duchess rather than an actress. Her friends, Meghan said, were so concerned about the media scrutiny they advised her not to marry Harry.

Meghan told broadcaster Tom Bradby: “When I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great, but you shouldn’t do it, because the British tabloids will destroy your life.’ “And I very naively — I’m American, we don’t have that there — [said], ‘what are you talking about? “That doesn’t make any sense. I’m not in tabloids.’

The Duchess of Sussex also spoke about how difficult it has been for her to cope with the media attention as she was pregnant and a new mother.

Meghan was asked by Mr Bradby, who has filmed a total of three documentary with Prince Harry, about the “impact on your physical and mental health of all the pressure that you clearly feel under”.

She said: “I would say – look, any woman, especially when they are pregnant, you are really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging.

During the documentary, Markle said that her experience with the tabloids is not “fair.” “When people are saying things that are just untrue and they’re being told they’re untrue but they’re allowed to still say them, I don’t know anybody in the world that would feel like that’s OK, and that’s different than just scrutiny,” she said. “That’s — what would you call that? That’s a different beast. That’s really just a different beast.”
