While Balaji Telefilms is willing to go ahead with the Censor Board’s decision about the cuts in Udta Punjab, Anurag Kashyap, who helms Phantom, disagrees.

The aftermath of the ongoing tussle between the makers of Udta Punjab and the Censor Board is an apparent fall out between the film’s co-producers Phantom and Balaji Telefilms.

It seems Balaji wants to take the cuts advised by the board while Phantom,helmed by Anurag Kashyap , wants to put up a long battle.

Says a source close to the development, “Jeetendra and Balaji Telefilms are ready to go by the Censor Board’s cuts as long as the film gets to be released on time on June 17. On the other hand Anurag Kashyap on behalf of Phantom won’t accept a single cut and is ready to fight it out with the board for as long as it takes.”
