Badals must watch 'powerful film' Udta Punjab, says Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi: Amidst the controversial release of 'Udta Punjab' on Friday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday cornered his Punjab counterpart Parkash Singh Badal and said the movie aptly shows active involvement of politicians in the prevailing drug menace in the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)-ruled state.
Kejriwal said Punjab's situation is quite bad as the politicians are freely distributing drugs in the state.
"Watched Udta Punjab. Movie shows politicians running drug rackets, drugs distributed freely during elections. Punjab situation quite bad," he tweeted.

After coming under scrutiny of the censor board, 'Udta Punjab' finally hit the screens yesterday and the social media was abuzz with views from celebrities and eminent politicians.
The CBFC had issued a fresh release certificate to ' Udta Punjab' after the Bombay High Court passed the film with just one cut and three disclaimers.
'Udta Punjab', the movie which stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh in lead role, has been passed with A-certificate.
