Thanks to the Censor Board, ‘Udta Punjab’ has got huge publicity. Since the film deals with drug trafficking and its abuse in Punjab, the Censor Board refused to allot certificate if the advised 40 cuts were not implemented. On the other hand, makers of Udta Punjab claimed that no one can make an authentic film about ‘drugs’ and its effects on people without using bold scenes and cuss words.
Both the censor board and the filmmakers were reluctant, so the film which was supposed to be released in April is tentatively slated for release on June 17.
Ram Gopal Varma tweeted that the film should have been named ‘Udta India’ or ‘Udta World’ owing to the subject of ‘Drugs’.
