‘Udta Punjab is banned by Censor board’ A statement that is breaking the internet since a few days. Everybody is talking about it. Discussions, polls, blames, signing online petitions, what not! As all this drama is going on, director Anurag Kashyap took it to his Twitter and put an end to the speculations.
This is what he said.
‘For the record ,”Udta Punjab” is not banned. The examining committe has deferred the decision to Revising and due process is on. And due process takes it own time so please abstain for spreading a BAN rumour. There is nothing to speak on the subject as of now. A film is banned only when examining, revising and FCAT all three refuse certificate. And then you fight it out in Supreme Court‘
In the case of Shahid Kapoor, kareena Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer Udta Punjab, the CBFC wants most of the cuss words to be edited out, despite the fact that the film’s makers had applied for adult certification (A).
