The Pakistani censor board on Tuesday gave a green signal to the release of “Udta Punjab” movie here after suggesting more than 100 cuts to remove “objectionable” content from the film. The movie carries foul and abusive language.

“All 10 members of the Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) have unanimously allowed Udta Punjab to be released after editing objectionable content,” Mubashir Hasan, the CBFC head said.

Hasan said almost every dialogue had offensive words so they asked for major cuts in the Punjab-set drug drama. “We have cut all derogatory and offensive words/dialogues and anti-Pakistan content from the film. More than 100 cuts, mutes, beeps have been suggested to the film’s distributor. Once he will complete the editing as per the requirement of the board, it will again be presented before it for final approval,” Hasan added.
