Earlier the same bench had over ruled an order of a single judge stalling the release of the movie. The bench passed the new judgement while hearing the plea by Uttar Pradesh-based social activist Sampat Pal seeking an injunction against the release of the film's DVDs and its screening on TV channels.

However the producer’s of the movie have been opposing the contention. Earlier, the producers had opposed the plea of Pal that the on-going screening of the movie has amounted to "continuous defamation", saying that it had bombed at the box office.
