The Censor Board of Film Certification is all set to give Udta Punjab an 'A-Adult Only' certificate. However, the A Certificate has been issued on the condition that the makers of the Shahid Kapoor film agree to incorporate the 89 cuts suggested by the revising committee, according to television reports.
The 89 cuts include omitting the references to Punjab from dialogues and the title as well as blurring them from the background in the film.
The board has also asked director Abhishek Chaubey to tone down the cuss words and remove politically sensitive terms like 'MLA' and 'elections'.
Though the film has been cleared with an 'A Certificate', Phantom Productions has appealed at the high court to clear the film as it is, without any cuts. The appeal will be heard at the high court today at 3 pm.
The movie stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh in pivotal roles.
