New Delhi: After the Bombay High Court slammed the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) for inequitably suggesting massive cuts into the ‘Udta Punjab’, it seems the battle is only half conquered.
A petition was filed in Punjab and Haryana High Court against the Anurag Kashyap movie ‘Udta Punjab’ which alleged that the movie was negatively branding the state of Punjab. The petition has said that the movie is unfit for exhibition.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court will conduct a hearing on June 16 about the plight of the movie. But since the Bombay High Court’s high-profiled censuring of CBFC, the Punjab and Haryana HC might follow the same track.
The filmmakers of ‘Udta Punjab’ have asked for a revised certification of the film from the CBFC.
