New Delhi: Supreme Court today dismissed all the alleged restrictions put up against Aamir Khan's ‘P.K.' poster.

Clearing all the stances over displayed ‘nudity' in Aamir Khan's ‘P.K.' poster, the honourable Supreme Court said, “Any restrictions on release of film would affect constitutional right of the film makers.”

SC has clearly defined the issue as a matter of art and entertainment. “These are matters of art and entertainment and let them remain so,” says SC on the film.

While the whole hoopla created around the film's poster was doing the rounds from last few days, the matter was held under the court jurisdiction until today.

Reacting on the rage that a few social groups showed against the poster, many theatres in Mumbai and other parts even withdrew ‘P.K.' poster.

Now since the court has decided not put any restriction on Aamir Khan's ‘P.K.,' the makers and the entire team of this anticipated film would have taken a sigh of relief. In addition, SC also addressed the petitioner saying, “If you don't like then don't watch the film but don't bring religious facets in it”.

The petition was filed by the All India Human Rights and Social Justice Front. The petition challenged that the film promotes nudity. And both, the actor Aamir Khan and the director Rajkumar Hirani were involved along with the Information and Broadcasting Ministry in the case.

P.K. also stars Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput in other pivotal roles. The poster of the film shows nude Aamir Khan lying in a deserted background standing on what looks like a railway track with just a transistor covering his modesty.

The film has been slated for release on December 19, this year.
