Earlier, addressing the media, Deputy Election Commissioner Sandeep Saxena said the poll panel has received responses from the producers of the film as well as from the Bharatiya Janata Party.
"We issued notices to the producers and we have received their responses. We had also sought comments from the BJP General Secretary and have received their response as well," Saxena said.
"Now the file is under examination and the matter is listed for Friday... We will take the final call tomorrow," he added.
The Congress had earlier urged the EC to stop the release of PM Narendra Modi, a biopic based on the life of the Prime Minister, stating that it violated the model code of conduct by promoting the Prime Minister's story and trying to cash in on his reach.
