Producers of drug-themed drama “Udta Punjab”, slated for Friday release, today lodged a complaint with cyber police alleging that the film was leaked online.
In their compliant lodged with the cyber crime police in Bandra, they stated the film was uploaded before its
release by some unidentified persons.
Police are tracing the IP address through which the movie was allegedly uploaded, an official said without elaborating.
“Udta Punjab” was in news after the censor board suggested that the makers alter the movie by 89 cuts. Later, it went to the Revising Committe, which brought it down to 13 cuts. However, the Bombay High Court on Monday gave the drug-themed movie a green signal for release after making just one cut and inserting three disclaimers.
