Ever since the issue raised by Censor Board about the film Udta Punjab, the media has been busy constantly reporting about the same. The makers knocked the door of Bombay High Court, which lambasted the Censor Board for playing the role of a judge rather than certifying the movie with A. Finally when the Bombay High Court categorically asked the board to play its role, the Censor Board has therefore embarked with its decision to allow the film to release on the said date giving 13 cuts under the A Certificate confirmed the chairman of the board – Pahlaj Nihalani on Sunday.
The chairman was in the midst of the storm for suggesting 89 cuts along with dropping the state name Punjab from the movie title. With this the job of the Censor Board ends up and now the makers of the film who will decide whether to challenge the decision of the Board or not in the court. The film is directed by Abhishek Chaubey, while it is scheduled to be released on 17th of June. The film has Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan coming on the screen for the first time, apart from having Alia Bhatt and Diljir Soanjh in it. On the other side, the court is likely to give its final verdict on this controversy today.
