'Udta Punjab': Of Power-Packed Performances, Strong Social Message
Divya Pal of News18 Movies is inside the theatre to find out if Anurag’s opinion is true.

If there is any news that has dominated headlines for over a week now, it ought to be the release of ‘Udta Punjab’.

After being embroiled in a controversy with Censor Board over the last few days, the makers of ‘Udta Punjab’ were allowed by the Bombay High Court to release the film with just one cut and a revised disclaimer. The HC had ordered ‘Udta Punjab’ makers to delete the scene wherein actor Shahid Kapoor is seen urinating in public.

Just when everybody thought they would get to watch the much-anticipated film, it was leaked online on Wednesday, two days ahead of its scheduled release in theatres.

Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, the film talks about the inebriating impact of drugs in Punjab.

Film’s producer Anurag Kashyap had recently said, 'There is no film more honest than Udta Punjab, and any person or party opposing it is actually guilty of promoting drugs.'

Divya Pal of News18 Movies is inside the theatre to find out if Anurag’s opinion is true.
