Talented actor Shahid Kapoor has been busy with multiple films in his career however the actor has been struggling for the right commercial break. Though his recent outing titled Haider received critical acclaim, the movie failed to mint huge money. He is now getting ready with his next movie titled Udta Punjab.
Abhishek Chaubey directed the movie and the shoot of the film has been wrapped up sometime ago. Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh played the lead roles in the movie which is about the drug mafia in Punjab. Shahid’s look and the explosive trailer created huge buzz all over which raised the expectations on Udta Punjab.
The movie is the latest to run foul of the censor board. The members of the censor board rejected the film as it had enough swearing, drug consumption and abusive words throughout. They asked the makers for 40 cuts which included songs, visuals and abusive episodes.
Anurag Kashyap has approached the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) to clear the film with minimal cuts and clear the movie soon. Produced by Balaji Motions Pictures, Phantom Films, Udta Punjab has been slated for a wide release across the world on June 17th.
