Bollywood dialogues that best describe the Udta Punjab controversy
The Bollywood fraternity has lashed out at the CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani for censoring the upcoming film Udta Punjab with 89 cuts! What’s more? The board also wants the film-makers to remove the word Punjab from the title as it ‘hurts’ the sentiments of the people from the state of Punjab.
We’ve tried to play out the drama in a language familiar to them and us—the Bollywood language!
Mr Dabangg Nihalani seemed proud to tear the film apart with 89 cuts!
Producer Anurag Kashyap had a special message for everybody supporting CBFC’s ‘Gabbar’.
Kareena Kapoor Khan wants the chief to justify his cuts!
A demure Alia Bhatt speaks about how her career is being sabotaged by the Censor Man.
The Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh hadn’t imagined his Bollywood debut film to be a short film.
Finally, Shahid Kapoor who plays the lead Tommy Singh in the film summed up the ordeal with unintended sarcasm. He was probably high, if you know what we mean.
Poor Arvind Kejriwal too bore the brunt of sticking his toe in the controversy when Anurag Kashyap asked him to stay out of the matter.
I completely agree. https://t.co/qLLfkMjPvL

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
