The Pakistan Censor Board yesterday approved the release of Shahid Kapoor-starrer Udta Punjab in that country after suggesting more than 100 cuts to remove 'objectionable' and 'anti-Pakistan' content from it. The film, which deals with drug menace in Punjab, had earlier run into trouble with the Indian Censor Board.
