After a prolonged fight and a successful release of Udta Punjab on June 17 in India, it’s now time for the film to struggle its way out of trouble in Pakistan.
According to Fakhr-Alam, chairman of Censor Board Sindh, the film has been viewed by the Board and they have asked the distributor to make a few changes, reports the Dawn.
“We have told the distributor to delete the bad language, swear words, which are extremely explicit and in direct conflict with the law and censor code. We will [then] review to see that the compliance has been adhered to and then issue a certificate,” he said.
Unfortunately, the release date of the film is yet to be announced. “As far as the release is concerned, it is up to the distributor,” he added.
Udta Punjab, which focuses on the impact and menace of drug abuse on the society, particularly in Punjab, has made a strong opening, collecting Rs 10.05 crore on its opening day and Rs 11.25 crore on Saturday.
