New Delhi: In a breather to Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, the Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the petition seeking stay on the release of his much-talked about film `P.K`. The SC maintained that any restrictions on release of film would affect constitutional right of the film makers.

Further, SC directed the petitioner saying that if you as an individual don`t like it then don`t watch the film and that these are matters of art and entertainment and let them remain so.

The whole controversy started off when the actor released the first look poster of the film, where he is seen in a nude avatar, covering his modesty with a transistor.

The petition by All India Human Rights and Social Justice Front was filed as the petitioner believed that the film promotes nudity and pleaded the apex court to immediately intervene in the matter.  

The petitioner even made Aamir Khan and the director of the film Rajkumar Hirani parties in the case in addition to the Centre and the Information and Broadcasting Ministry.
