No interim orders could be given to stay the release of Hindi feature film Ek Villan , Justice P. Naveen Rao of the Hyderabad High Court clarified on Wednesday.

The judge was dealing with a petition filed by one Sammullah Khan, who complained that his application to delete an objectionable song was not considered. He said the word ‘Madina’ was used in the song, while requesting the Censor Board to take action. He lamented that no action was taken.

The judge said it was up to the Central Board Film Certification authorities to look into the representation made by the petitioner.
