Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Monday rapped the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for the cuts it ordered in the film 'Udta Punjab', saying ‘mere references, signboards of Punjab does not affect sovereignty and integrity of India.’

Though the decision by the court has come as a big relief for the makers as they can now release the film with only one cut and a revised disclaimer it seems like the trouble isn't over yet. Just two days before of the release, an NGO has appealed Supreme Court questioning the Bombay High Court verdict.

 

According to a report by ANI, a Punjab based non-government organisation has appealed a stay on film. After the final verdict of 'Udta Punjab' by Bombay HC on Monday afternoon, the team held a press conference on Tuesday to thank the media for its support and celebrate the victory of prolonged battle with the censor board. The press conference saw the presence of Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Diljit Dosanjh, Vikas Bahl, Anurag Kashyap and Abhishek Chaubey.
