CBFC gives ‘Udta Punjab’ an ‘A’ certificate with 13 cuts

There were reports that CBFC has asked for 89 to 90 cuts in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab’. The makers of the film had moved to court for justice. But, yesterday CBFC cleared the film by giving an ‘A’ certificate with 13 cuts.

CBFC chairman, Pahlaj Nihalani, said “We have today cleared ‘Udta Punjab’ under A (restricted for adult audience) category after 13 cuts.”

Nihalani stated that nine members of CBFC watched the film and “unanimously” cleared it after the proposed 13 cuts.

“The CBFCs job is now over. It is now up to the producer to go to the court or tribunal. We will implement the order,” he said.

The movie which stars Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh is slated to release on June 17. The Bombay High Court is going to give their judgement today.

Here are the 13 cuts that CBFC has demanded:
