The movie Udta Punjab is under turmoil of censorship. Movie Udta Punjab is about the drug abuse that transpires in Punjab.
Earlier Central board of Film Certification (CBFC) decided to do 40 cuts with A certification but now they have raised the cuts from 40 to 89 with an ordered to drop Punjab from film title.
Many Bollywood actors and directors spoke strongly against the censorship board.
On the issue, Arjun Kapoor tweeted “U know a lot of people in our fraternity speak up for other causes, it's time we stood up for our own. #UdtaPunjabdeserves a proper release”.
Farhan Akhtar also shared his thought on social media “Power is the most dangerous addiction of all & someone in the CBFC seems to be tripping hard on Lassi in the Sky with Diamonds. #UdtaPunjab”.
For all of this director Karan Johar tweeted “#UdtaPunjab speaks of the reality of our times....censoring reality amounts to delusion.....the fraternity has to stand by what's right!!”.
