Shahid Kapoor-starrer ‘Udta Punjab’ has been in the news for a while for its plot which centres around Punjab’s infamous drug problem. Putting the rumours of it’s ban to rest, the Central Board of Film Certification’s Revising Committee has asked the filmmakers to make 89 cuts in the film and removing all references to the state.

The move can be seen in the light of upcoming assembly elections in the state and may adversely affect the current regime in Punjab.

Twitterati is obviously not happy with the decision giving way to the hashtag #UdtaPunjabCensored and #UdtaPunjab on the micro-blogging site mocking the move.
