Bollywood Udta Punjab Movie Story plot Details Leaked

The movie featuring Indian actors Shahid Kapur, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh deals with the Indian state of Punjab's drug menace and is directed by director Abhishek Chaubey.

The movie created a major controversy after it ran into trouble with the CBFC, with officials reportedly demanding 89 cuts in it and the removal of the word "Punjab" from the title.

As of now, all we can do is wait for the verdict to be out on whether the film will be released on the scheduled date or not.

The monstrously controversial film Udta Punjab caught in a crossfire of debate and counter-debated on censorship is "most likely" to be released on time on June 17.

Faced with considerable embarrassment from the Bombay High Court, which made some damning observations about the CBFC, it's chief Pahlaj Nihalani has now revealed that Anurag Kashyap's Udta Punjab has been given "A" certificate.

"We have today cleared Udta Punjab under the A (adult) category after 13 cuts", Nihalani told reporters on the sidelines of a programme here.

Meanwhile, responding to a query, Nihalani, who has been criticised by the film fraternity for his "dictatorial attitude" said, "those call me cheap are themselves "ghatia" (lowly)".

On Friday, the court had said the makers of Udta should tone down expletives and vulgar scenes. But as per the fresh reports in media, the producers of the movie are gearing up for timely release.

When prodded further if the news of her pregnancy was false, the "Ki and Ka" actress said, "The fact that you all are talking about it is making me super excited".

Amid a raging row over the drug-themed crime thriller film "Udta Punjab", Congress MP Renuka Chowdhury on Saturday mocked at the Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP government and said that they should welcome the film which saved the government's money in advertising and creating awareness on drugs. I&B minister Arun Jaitley had, however, said radical changes in the certification process were in the offing. The Shyam Benegal-led panel too has suggested the same.
