Shyam Benegal to view the special screening of 'Udta Punjab' tomorrow

Filmmaker Shyam Benegal who heads the government-appointed censor board revamp committee will be attending an exclusive screening of the movie ‘Udta Punjab’ tomorrow. He has shown a keen interest in watching the movie, as there has been a huge backlash from the film fraternity who are against the CBFC for suggesting 89 cuts and asking to delete the word ‘Punjab’ from the title ‘Udta Punjab’. Just recently Anurag Kashyap also lashed out to the media with a tweet.


So in the wake of these events, eminent filmmaker Shyam Benegal who is also a member of the revising committee thought it sensible to watch the movie, so that he can comment on the entire fiasco.

“I don’t know the actual matter as I have not seen the film. I will see it tomorrow and then only I can say something. Before that, it is not fair on my part to comment or say anything on it (cuts and issues raised by censor board),” he told PTI.
