Censor Board wants expletives in ‘Udta Punjab’ edited out
New Delhi, May 27 (ANI): While the trailer of the film ‘Udta Punjab’ has left the audience in anticipation of it, the Censor Board of India has put the release of the film on hold on grounds that there is an over usage of expletives. Apparently, the Central Board for Film Certification has demanded that most of the cuss words be edited out if the movie is to be certified for release. The movie’s makers say that they were expecting a Censor Board directive, but are not really in favor of chopping off the expletives as they believe it will take away the essence of the central character played by Shahid Kapoor. As the film stands on hold, questions are being asked as to why the CBFC allowed the film’s promo without any cuts and beeps. One of the producers, Anurag Kashyap, has spoken about how censorship has marred his creative processes, but has opted not to join issue with the CBFC for the moment. The film, starring Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor, will be released on June 17.
