'Udta Punjab' has been embroiled in more than one controversy over the last few days. Rumours of all kinds made the rounds, which included the Censor Board not issuing the certificate to CBFC asking the makers to make 89 cuts. There was also a strong buzz about Punjab being asked to drop from the film's title by CBFC.
Putting all rumours to rest is the latest development in the case. The CBFC has asked the film for 13 cuts like removal of name Punjab in background. Some of the other cuts demanded are: Delete abusive words from songs, and words like MP Party, election and MLA. Don't name the dog Jackie Chan, remove scenes of actor urinating in front of a crowd, and close shots of injecting drugs. (Here's the list of full 13 cuts)
Twitterati, over the past few days, have been outraging on social media over the controversy surrounding Udta Punjab's censor woes.
Here are 10 of the funniest reactions to the controversy:
