Udta Punjab fails to get Certificate from Censor Board.

Udta Punjab has run into trouble right now. Film has failed to get censor certificate from CBFC. Censor is not even ready to give 'A' certificate to the film.

Actual reasons are yet to be known. However proper sources suggest film has run into problem because of two issues. First is the abusive language used in the film. And second is drug abuse topic. It is also rumoured that some political party is against screening of the film in theaters as it might have shown Punjab in bad light.

Makers of Udta Punjab have now approached the Film Certificate Appellate Tribunal (FCAT). With only 3 weeks to go for its release, the makers are not ready to compromise on the content and considering the way FCAT has previously certified films (including adult comedies), they decided to approach the Tribunal for the film. 
Anurag Shrivastav, CEO of Censor Board stated that the film was further referred to Revising Committee after the differences with Examining Committee, the makers decided to approach the FCAT directly instead and the decision is now in their hands. 

Udta Punjab stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles. Film is slated to release on June 17.

  1. The censor board really needs to be revamped to have some 'sense' in them. The Indian audience are not living in the 60's. People are a lot smarter than what they think. The people who shortened the kissing scene in Spectre and banned an erotic thriller like 50 Shades of Grey are nothing but a bunch of idiots.

  2. Chutiya sensor board!!... y don't u ban movies like Mastizaade , kkhh 3 etc

  3. But the Issues Shown in the Film is Reality, it means the political leaders don't want people to know about their failure to stop drug mafia in our Beloved Country. Few Months Back i read a article in Urdu News Paper "Inquilab" that Police Arrest the people who is Spreading Awareness about danger of Drug to youngsters they were Counseling Drug Addict Youngsters by free of Cost & Our City Police instead of Appreciating their work they Arrested them, Why ? Maybe Pressurize by Political Leaders who are involve with Drug Mafia.

    1. Yup it's a disgrace for our country. Hope this film gets released soon to end it all.
