A Supreme Court in the Indian state of Maharashtra ruled in favour to public interest films on the temple grandinet on Wednesday, ruling that there was no need for a censor.
The Supreme Court had earlier ruled in favor of public access to the grandinet, saying that a film on the event would be a public interest.
The Supreme Court also granted permission to public access after it ruled that a public event should not be censored in such cases, but that it could be if there was a clear justification.
The decision came in response to a case filed by the state government and the Bombay High Court seeking the film’s exemption.
The ruling comes after the Supreme Court decided on February 10 that a cinema that screened the film on February 1 should not have been restricted, citing concerns about the impact of the film.
The Bombay High Courts had challenged the government’s decision to ban the film in a landmark case in 2007.
The government said it was necessary to provide public access.
In the film, a young man and a woman are seen playing with a snake while they have sex.
The case, The Temple Grandin: An Indian Film, which is directed by Kala Ghoda, had also raised concerns about what it called a “shocking depiction” of the rape of a young woman by a man at a temple.
