Director Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab has Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh. By the film’s trailer, we could make out that it apparently going to be a dark film dealing with drug abuse and its impact on youth.
According to a source, the cuts include any number of expletives, plus a song.Visuals of substance abuse were also asked to be removed. The film’s leading man Shahid Kapoor is a drug addict and is shown to be a serial abuser. Instead of going to the Revising Committee of the CBFC, producer Anurag Kashyap went straight to the Tribunal in the hope of a hasty clearance with nominal cuts. Now we hope that Udta Punjab has same impact on audience after these 40 cuts too.[/tps_footer]
