Chief minister Nitish kumar said the state government will not release without "amicable solution" for all parties involved.

The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday dismissed a fresh plea seeking to stall the release of the film "Padmavati" outside India.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra dismissed the fresh petition that had sought an order to restrain the producers of the movie from releasing it overseas. "It'll prejudice minds of board members while taking a decision", Indian Express quoted the court as saying.

As per reports, the apex court noted that statements by persons holding high office is tantamount to pre-judging the movie as it turned down the plea against the film's release.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar is heading the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government in Haryana, where the film isn't banned.

Lawyer M L Sharma had also sought a direction to the Central Bureau of Investigation to register a case against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and others for various offences including defamation and violation of the Cinematography Act. The movie features Deepika Padukone in the title role as Rani Padmini, alongside Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, Shahid Kapoor as MaharajaRawal Ratan Singh, Jim Sarbh, and Aditi Rao Hydari.
