Kashyap was recently in limelight when the controversial film Udta Punjab, which was produced under his banner Phantom Films, was asked by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to effect 89 cuts.

The Gangs of Wasseypur director then moved to Bombay High Court, which later ruled out 88 cuts from the Abhishek Chaubey directorial and ordered the CBFC to issue an A certificate to the film.

Udta Punjab, which starred Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh, later got released on June 17 and received good response in theatres.
