GN Bureau | June 8, 2016
The entire film fraternity stood with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap as a controversy raged over his film Udta Punjab. Kashyap produced the film that is based on the drug menace in Punjab. Top Bollywood filmmakers, actors and producers objected to the 89 censor cuts recommended for the film and criticised censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
The censor board has also asked the filmmakers to drop 'Punjab' from the title and also delete every reference to the state, politics and elections from it. The film was due for release on June 17. Mukesh Bhatt, head of Film and Television Producers Guild of India, requested the I&B ministry to remove Nihalani from his post for the arbitrary censorship.
Nihalani on Wednesday said that Kashyap has taken money from the Aam Aadmi Party to highlight to drug problem in the state which will go to polls soon.
"Nihalani should prove I have taken money. He does not even know how to lie," said Kashyap.
