SC okays ‘Udta Punjab’ release 

New Delhi, June 16 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to interfere with a Bombay High Court order allowing the release of Bollywood film “Udta Punjab”, set to hit the screens on Friday.

The apex court’s vacation bench of Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice L. Gagaswara Rao said: “We are not going into the merits of the matter in the absence of the high court judgement.”

However, the court permitted the Punjab-based NGO Human Rights Awareness Association, which sought the Supreme Court’s intervention to block the movie’s release, to approach the apex court at a later stage.

The high court on June 13 allowed the release of “Udta Punjab”, which had faced problems with the censors, with one cut and more disclaimers.
