One of the most-talked about and eagerly-awaited film of the year, Udta Punjab, is also the movie that has run into trouble with the Central Board for Film Certification. Apparently the movie is laden with expletives, has an uninhibited use of abusive language and gestures that may offend sentiments as per the guidelines and norms of CBFC.
When the movie was put for its certification, the rumours of ban started floating. According to the reports, due to the abusive and violent nature of the movie, the movie did not pass the guidelines set up the board and was set to be banned. Setting the rumours straight, co-producer Anurag Kashyap issued a statement on his official Twitter handle negating the claims.
The Censor Board refused to issue a certificate to the film, and the film was then passed to the Revising Committee of Censor Board to obtain the certificate. The Recommendations/Objections of the Reviewing Committee have assumed political overtones and wants the film to be set in fictional land instead of Punjab and has asked for a lot of cuts to be made.
The reviewing committee has found the reality of drug problem faced in Punjab to be defamatory towards the youth of Punjab. The previous ruling party Akali Dal was not happy with the movie and tried to get the movie banned. There is a lot of political pressure on the film considering the Punjab State Elections slated to happen early next year. Shahid has commented on the issue and said that Punjab is a part of India and the problem faced is very real. He even said that he feels that the movie should be made tax-free.
Udta Punjab is directed by Abhishek Chaubey, produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures. The movie stars Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapur, Kareena Kapoor and Diljith Dosanjh in lead roles and is slated to release in India on 17th June.
