Udta Punjab Cleared of all the allegations and the Censor Board has finally agreed to clear the movie for screening. The decision was taken few hours back when the Censor Board decided to go reluctant after the hearing of the Bombay High Court. The movie has been cleared that has been dealt with the drug use in Punjab State.
There have been huge controversies with the movie and censor board has now agreed to clear the movie. The Bombay High Court decision was pending on Monday. However, the CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihlani has cleared it a night before. The movie was central of controversy as the Censor board asked for 94 cuts. The board has given the movie “A” certificate. The producer of the movie Anurag Kashyap went to the court and Bombay High Court asked stern questions to the Censor Board. The court would have directed for the same but the Censor board has cleared the movie with A certificate before that. The step has simply shown that Pahlaj Nihlani has bowed down to the pressure created by the court and the Bollywood.
Udta Punjab Cleared but it is yet to be decided that when the movie will be released. Udta Punjab release date was June 16th. However, it has to bee seen that whether the movie releases on the same date or the producers delay the release by a week. However, from commercial prospective, the delaying of movie will be disastrous. The movie is trending now and release can be a game changer for it.
