Dismissing the plea by Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society, the Supreme Court on Friday refused to ban Aiyaary. The apex court said people cannot be allowed to become "super censor board" who restrict artistic freedom. Helmed by Neeraj Pandey, Aiyaary stars Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Rakul Preet Singh, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in the lead roles. As soon as the film based on the Adarsh scam released, the society had rushed to the Supreme Court seeking a ban on the film's release. The society alleged that the film depicts them in a bad light.
