Masaba Gupta joined Alia Bhatt for the Udta Punjab screening that saw only a few close friends in attendance.
Alia, who plays one of the leading characters in Udta Punjab, seemed unfazed by the Censor Board's decision to take Punjab off the title and make 89 cuts in the film.
Producer Vikas Bahl had stated in a previous interview that he wanted the film to get an A certificate.
Meanwhile, Producer Anurag Kashyap went on a Twitter rant, comparing the censor board to the dictatorial North Korea regime.
The Bollywood film fraternity rallied behind Anurag and Vikas by tweeting out their support.
On the other side of town, we spotted Shahid Kapoor shooting for an advertisement.
Shahid, who ended 2015 on a bad note with the whole 'Shandaar' debacle, has found himself in a sticky situation once again with Udta Punjab.
Shahid Kapoor sent out a tweet this evening, thanking fans for their support. He said, "Overwhelmed with all the support #UdtaPunjab #freedomofexpression #drugsdimaadi."
