Udta Punjab is all set to release on 17 June

Finally Udta Punjab will release on schedule on June 17. The Bombay High Court has asked for just one change in the film. They have asked for the scene showing Shahid Kapoor urinating into a crowd to go. The makers of Udta Punjab have happily agreed to remove that sequence.

Late in the afternoon on Monday, the honourable High Court announced that some of the abuses and expletives must go. However most of the language has been left intact.

Reacting to this verdict Censor chief Pahlaj Nihlani says, “We had requested the producers of Udta Punjab to tone down the abuses. No one speaks as filthily as Shahid Kapoor is shown speaking in the film.”

Says the honourable  Court, “We do not find the film questions sovereignty or integrity of India by the names of cities, reference to state or by a signpost.” This  means  the the title Udta Punjab remains.

The Court also declares that the film has not been made keeping the mind the forthcoming Punjab elections. Now the film is all set to release on time on June 17.

Relieved beyond belief producer Madhu Mantena said. “This is a big day for not just us, the makers of UdtaPunjab but the entire film industry.We’ve been told by the honourable court that freedom of expression is not to be frowned at.”

Director Abhishek Chaubey could not be more elated with the court’s decision. “Massively relieved today, looking to release the film on the scheduled date,” he said.
