National Award-winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar on Thursday hailed the Supreme Court's order to stay the ban on the release of controversial film 'Padmavaat'. 'I welcome the judgment of the court for giving green signal to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum-opus. It's a great news for the filmmaker and the cine goers who are looking forward to watch the film,' Bhandarkar told ANI.

The 49-year-old further said, 'I hope the state government will provide security for the cine goers and definitely it will be a smooth release.' Earlier in the day, the top court stayed notifications issued by the four states -Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat - to ban the release of Bhansali's film.

In its interim order, the court said all states are constitutionally obliged to maintain law and order and prevent any untoward incident during the screening of the film after permission has been granted by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Producers of 'Padmaavat' yesterday moved the top court to convince the aforementioned states to withdraw their ban on the release of the film.
