Bombay HC clears Udta Punjab with just one cut.

In what is being hailed as a victory of freedom of speech and creativity, the Bombay High Court cleared the release of Udta Punjab with just one cut and a revised disclaimer.

The High Court ordered the Censor Board to clear Udta Punjab with just one cut and issue a fresh certificate to movie in two days. Refusing to stay the release of the film, as demanded by the board, the court directed the makers of the film to delete urination scene and asks for a revised disclaimer.

 

Talking to media after the verdict, producer Anurag Kahsyap’s lawyer said its a vindication of democracy. “We have to delete only one scene (urination). It is a vindication of democracy,” said the lawyer.
