Cuts recommended by Censors for Udta Punjab
What began off as a minor film that arrangements with the medication threat in the condition of Punjab has now fuelled up into an immense debate which got to be murkier as a progression of political allegations and legitimate strategies brought about real cuts in title and exchanges of Udta Punjab.
