New Delhi: The Central Board of Film Certification is once again at the receiving end of public anger and furore. This time the reason is upcoming movie ‘Udta Punjab’, which is reportedly being grounded by Censor Board because of excessive swearing.

The multi-starrer movie features Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh in pivotal roles and is based on drug abuse in Punjab.

The trailer of the movie, which released in April, depicted that Shahid plays a rock star in the film who is addicted to drugs. And there were quite a few scenes in the trailer where he was seen swearing.

However, seeing the context of the movie, the bad language didn’t come as a surprise for the viewers and the trailer was well received by them. But the Censor Board is not too pleased with excessive use of cuss words in the movie and reportedly has stopped its release.

As per reports, producer Anurag Kashyap has approached Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Minister of State for I&B (Informational and Broadcasting) to get the pathway clear for the movie.

Meanwhile, social birds, who were desperately waiting for the movie’s release, have taken to Twitter to showcase their anger over Censor Board’s decision. ‘Shame On Censor Board’ has been trending from quite a while now with hundreds of tweets chirping in every second.

Take a look:

There are some funny reactions too.

We are sure cine buffs will be hoping that the tussle between Censor Board and Anurag Kashyap ends soon and they will get to see a movie which is based on an important social issue.
