Going deep into the details, when film unit contacted Censor Board the Board members noted for 40 cuts in the film. Feeling it unfair the film unit went to Review Committee, where they referred them to more than 89 cuts and also suggested them to change the title of the film too. The film unit approached the Bombay High Court. After hearing to the Board objections for the film the Court directed the CBFC to issue an ‘A’ certificate with a single cut. When everything is going well for the film release, a non-profit organization’s manager of Punjab approached the Supreme Court saying that the film contains objectionable scenes. However, the Supreme Court’s decision is in favor of the filmmakers and hence the Udta Punjab is expected to hit the Big screens on this Friday.
