New Delhi: Bollywood stars Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer 'Udta Punjab' has been in news lately for all the wrong reasons. It is being said that some politically motivated agendas are trying to alter the content of this film.
Recently, Sasha's brother Ishaan Khattar posted his brutally honest opinion about the whole controversy online and it makes quite a sense.
Here's what he wrote:
“There are many things I'd like to say about how massively disappointing the authorities have been but for now I'd prefer to focus on how very important it is for our nation's people to watch this film and learn what it has to offer,” Ishaan posted on a popular social networking website.
He added, “I'm not only speaking from a personal front, being that I'm one of the many who've put their blood and sweat into making a picture about the drug epidemic that's plaguing Punjab (a reality I have seen first hand), but also as an audience. I hope we can watch #udtapunjab the way it is meant to be watched.”
As per latest reports, the makers of 'Udta Punjab' have been asked by the Censor Board to make changes, altering any reference to Punjab. The Abhishek Chaubey directorial is slated to hit the silver screens on June 17 this year.
