Veteran artist Jeetendra, who calls himself a “proud son of Punjab”, says Udta Punjab – a motion picture co-produced by his home banner Balaji Motion Pictures – is not expected at stigmatizing the state in any capacity.
On Monday, the producers of Bollywood film Udta Punjab are said to have been solicited by the Revising Committee from the edit board to evacuate all references to Punjab – a choice maybe taken under weight from the decision administration in the state which is managing a putrefying issue of medications.
Because of this present, Jeetendra’s son Tusshar Kapoor imparted his dad’s message to his fans.
The message read: “: “Jeetendra: We respect the people of Punjab and certainly would never want to hurt their sentiments. We have and will always go by whatever right advice the CBFC gives! Films are for entertainment, not for defamation and we have no such intention as I, myself, am a proud son of Punjab.”
Featuring Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh, Udta Punjab, which is coordinated by Abhishek Chaubey, dives into how the young in the state have succumbed to drugs.
Together delivered by Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films, Udta Punjab is slated to release on June 17. – CINEWS
