Udta Punjab : Bahubali director SS Rajamouli too come out against Censor board
The Udta Punjab issue is getting hotter and hotter as each day passes and the censor board of film certification in India is feeling the heat now. They had banned the film and suggested that if the team behind the film want to get it certified, then they have to cut down 89 parts from the film as suggested by the Censor Board. They suggested for the change in title of this film as well.
This film starred by Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor was produced by Anurag Kashyap and directed by Abhishek Chaubey. Indian film industry had come out supporting the movie and many prominent figures here had already raised the voice against the censor board. The latest in that list is the Bahubali director SS Rajamouli.
SS Rajamouli said that a few people does not have the right to decide what this country want to see on screen. He said that, as a director, he knows what may be the things that going through the mind of the team behind the film right now. He said he is with the team of the film in this issue. 8 or 10 people can never decide what this country want to see and as a father only he has the right to decide what his children should see. No censor board can decide on that.
Meanwhile Bomaby High Court also said that Censor board is there only to certify the film not to censor it or ban it.
