The CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures Ltd Aman Gill also went on record to say “To set the record straight, ‘Udta Punjab‘ has not been banned. The examining committee has referred the decision to the Revising committee and the due process is on.”

So there you go! There’s still hope for Udta Punjab! According to a report of a leading daily, the Censor Board has demanded 40 cuts in Udta Punjab. The censor board is not happy with the excessive use of explicit language and some bold scenes because of which they have asked the makers to tone down the content for an Adult Certificate. The makers of the movie have approached the Tribunal to revise the rating and are hopeful to seek relief.
