Alia Bhatt's Udta Punjab struggle to move out of drug addiction

Alia Bhatt

Remember how Alia Bhatt sincerely hoped for something good to come out from her much awaited film Udta Punjab, when the movie was in trouble due to Censor Board.

Alia Bhatt says the intention behind the movie is not to denounce those involved in drug problems but to empathize them with their struggle to move out of it.

The film is based on the issue of drug addiction in Punjab.

There were issues that Censor Board was not clearing the film.

Alia says "Whosoever watches the film he/she will realize it is a story, which is important because it is almost like education of what the situation is. We are not attacking anybody in particular, we are showing a perspective, and it’s a backdrop".

Co-produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures, Udta Punjab also stars Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Punjabi singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh. 

It is expected to hit the theatres on 17th June 2016.
