The Supreme Court today asked the Election Commission to watch the biopic on Prime minister Narendra Modi and submit a report in a sealed cover on whether to put the movie on hold till the Lok Sabha elections are over.

The order was passed by a Bench of Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna in a petition filed by the producers of the movie challenging the decision of the EC.
