Finally, the long-lasted controversy of Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Udta Punjab’ has ended. Pahlaj Nihalani, the chief of CBFC has decided to certify the movie with an ‘A’ grade and just 13 cuts.
On Friday, the Bombay High Court claimed that the Indian audience is sensible enough to understand the difference between wrong and right but the news started spreading Sunday night.
“Audience is mature; let the audience decide. How can you say which word is right and which is wrong? Today’s audience is smart and intelligent. They know what is right and what is wrong. Film industry is not a glass which has to be handled with care. What’s the point of making a film if you cut majority of scenes from it? Also, you want to remove the word ‘Punjab’ from the title, which is pointless,” the judge said.
