This is probably the worst thing that could have happened to Udta Punjab. In a big attempt to sabotage Udta Punjab by those who are opposing its release, the complete movie has already leaked online. At some places a 40 minutes DVD print is available. Meanwhile, the full movie is available on certain websites. (Confirmed by our team)
The Central Board of Film Certification has not submitted the certificate to Udta Punjab yet. However, shockingly, the leaked copy bears the ‘For Censor’ stamp, which indicates that it’s the same copy that’s with the CBFC. Shahid's urinating scene (which is cut by Bombay High Court) is also in the leaked copy. It is a shame for CBFC who has leaked the film online just for their personal egos.
The battle between Udta Punjab makers and CBFC has been raging over the past few days, with the Censor Board demanding as many as 89 cuts in the Abhishek Chaubey-directorial.
