As reported by PTI, the apex court has agreed to hear the plea of producers of the film. 

Only Tuesday, the Manohar Lal Khattar government in Haryana banned the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial film in the state

"Padmaavat", which was earlier named as Padmavati, is scheduled to hit theatres on January 25 after it was cleared by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in December.
