    New Delhi/Nagpur:
    The Supreme Court on Thursday declined to hear a plea by Punjab-based NGO Human Rights Awareness Association to halt the screening of the film Udta Punjab and asked it to approach the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

    Earlier in the day, a vacation bench of Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and L. Nageswara Rao said it would hear the plea at the end of matters listed for the day.

    “We will hear the matter at the end of the board and see if we can entertain the plea in the absence of the June 14 Bombay High Court judgement directing the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to issue an ‘A’ certificate to the film with just one cut,” the bench said.

    Appearing for he movie’s producer, Phantom Films, senior counsel Meenakshi Arora said the CBFC had given the certificate and the film was released overseas. The film was scheduled for release across 8,000 screens countrywide on Friday.
