SC moved to halt the screening of ‘Udta Punjab’

New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) A Punjab based NGO, Human Rights Awareness Association, on Wednesday sought to put on hold the screening of controversial film ‘Udta Punjab’ as it projected the agrarian state in a bad light.

The NGO told a Supreme Court vacation bench of Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice L.Nageshwara Rao that the Bombay High Court, which on Monday had cleared the screening of the film with one cut, could not have interfered with the decision of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

The Bombay High Court, had directed the producer of ‘Udta Punjab’ to make one cut and insert three disclaimers saying, among others that the film did not promote drugs.

Earlier, the CBFC had directed more than a dozen cuts in the film – down from the previous 89 – coupled with other directions before its release.
