Udta Punjab has found itself in the middle of a huge controversy as the film centres around the drug problem that the state has been plagued with. Bollywood is up in arms against the Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC), which has ordered film-makers to make 89 cuts. But All India Bakchod, an Indian comedy collective (whose co-founder himself was in the middle of a soup because he didn’t self-censor his video), has released a poster on how the film could be released (pun intended, obviously).
In the poster, which has gone viral with over 13,000 shares at last viewing, the film’s lead actor Shahid ‘Sanskari’ Kapoor wears an orange robe in his film “Udta Beep”, which is a story of a “sanskari Punjabi boy and lassi”.
Given that state elections are just a few months away, Nihalani has accused the makers of Udta Punjab being funded by a political party for which the film fraternity has asked him to apologise.
Whether the film will release on June 17 or not, with or without cuts, is still a question but AIB has slated it for “Shubh Muhart”.
