Bombay High Court rules just one cut in Udta Punjab
Mumbai: Bombay High Court, on Monday, ruled its verdict in favour of Abhishek Choubey directed film Udta Punjab as it asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to give fresh certificate to the makers with only one cut.
High Court also refused CBFC’s demand of stay on the release of the Anurag Kashyap co-produced film.
What Bombay HC observed?
- We don’t feel the necessity of the scene where Tommy Singh is seen urinating in front of crowd
- Punjab is land of green revolution, brave soldiers. One sentence (Zameen banjar te aulaad kanjar) can't affect that image
- Only one close up scene of injecting drug will not violate the mandate, hence there is no need to delete it
- Words MP, MLA, Parliament etc don't refer to any outfit but reflect for general political work. There isn’t any need for its removal
Film’s director Abhishek Choubey said, “Massively relieved today, looking to release the film on the scheduled date.”
Udta Punjab revolves around the sensitive issue of drug abuse among the youths in Punjab. Film stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles.
Film is slated for June 17 release.
