Referring to its earlier judgement, the court said that it was incumbent upon the state governments to ensure the maintenance of law and order.

The court order came on the plea by the producers of the film -- Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures -- challenging the ban on the screening of the film by the Gujarat, Rajasthan and Haryana governments.
