New Delhi: Filmmaker Prakash Jha on Friday moved Supreme Court to lift the ban on his movie 'Aarakshan' that released on Friday across India, except for some states. The court will hear Jha's plea at 2 pm on Friday. While Uttar Pradesh has banned the screening of the movie, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh have imposed an interim ban on the movie.

Both states have formed a committee to look into any anti-Dalit references that the film may have, before giving it a green signal. In Punjab, the screening of the film for government officials turned into a family outing, even though it was supposed to be a restricted preview.

The seven-member panel in Punjab extended the ban on the film in the state on Friday till further notice.
