In a show of solidarity with the makers of Udta Punjab, Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan on Friday said he was “proud” of the Abhishek Chaubey-directed film and the censorship controversy surrounding it has brought to light the sad situation Indian films often find themselves in.
The film which centres around the drug problem in Punjab is embroiled in a battle with the censor board over the latter’s demand of several cuts including the removal of the word “Punjab” from the whole film as well as the title.
