Harbhajan Singh defends Udta Punjab

New Delhi: Harbhajan Singh has reacted to the on-going controversy of ‘Udta Punjab’. In a tweet Harbhajan mentioned that he is not a movie buff but 'Udta Punjab' is rightly showing the problem of drug menace in Punjab.

Harbhajan also mentioned that everybody wants Punjab to be a drug-free state and Punjab is known for better things like love, peace, brotherhood, culture respect and freedom.    

The controversial movie ‘Udta Punjab’, highlights the drug epidemic existing all over Punjab.

The Censor Board has ordered 89 clips in the movie be chopped in order to remove the cuss words used in the film.

Earlier, the board had also asked to remove reference to the state of Punjab in the film. The reference to police in Punjab is also under question. But these changes are not merely artistic. The ruling party of the Badals in Punjab, worried about the impact Udta Punjab will have on the upcoming states elections, objected to the title of the movie as well as the portrayal of Punjab as a whole.
