Directed by Abhishek Chaubey and co-produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures, “Udta Punjab” delves into how youths in the state fall prey to drugs. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has asked the makers to drop ‘Punjab’ from the film’s name besides effecting as many as 89 cuts in the movie. Ridiculous by all standards.

‘There is no film more honest than UDTA PUNJAB .. And any person or party opposing it is actually GUILTY of promoting drugs…It’s my fight Vs a dictatorial man sitting there operating like an oligarch in his constituency of censor board, that’s my North Korea’  Anurag Kashyap said in a tweet.. The movie Udta Punjab shows the dark reality of youth in Punjab & every Punjabi wants that the plight of Punjabi youth to be improved.
