It has been reported that Udta Punjab has undergone scissors of censor board in a ruthless manner as 89 cuts has been suggested by the board and they want to remove the name Punjab from the movie. Anurag kashyap one of the producer of the movie was not willing to let it go as usual. His fight with censor board is not a new thing. His movies were the one which suffered the most in the hands of censor board. yesterday he used his Twitter account to show his extreme displeasure over the issue,
I always wondered what it felt like to live in North Korea .. Ab to plane pakadney ki bhi zaroorat nahin..
There is no film more honest than UDTA PUNJAB .. And any person or party opposing it is actually GUILTY of promoting drugs
And the trolls are out to create a diversion
I request Congress, AAP and other political parties to stay out of my battle. It's my Rights vs the Censorship. I speak only on my behalf
It's my fight Vs a dictatorial man sitting there operating like an oligarch in his constituency of censor board, that's my North Korea
Rest of you go pick your own fights. I will fight mine.
So please don't colour my fight with any political affiliation because there is none.
