Even as everyone cries foul over the decision of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), producer Anurag Kashyap has said that the film is not ‘banned’.
The censor board recently asked the makers of Udta Punjab to make numerous cuts in the film that stars Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh. The board believed that the film has shown “excessive swearing, abusive language and drug consumption”.

Anurag Kashyap has produced Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab.
Clarifying that the certification of Udta Punjab was in due process, Anurag took to Twitter and wrote, “For the record ,Udta Punjab is not banned. The examining committee has deferred the decision to Revising and due process is on. And due process takes it own time so please abstain for spreading a BAN rumour. There is nothing to speak on the subject as of now. A film is banned only when examining, revising and FCAT all three refuse certificate . And then you fight it out in Supreme Court.”
